Typing at Altitude

The highest point in the British Isles is 4,409 ft.

For the last few days I’ve been camping out in the Sierra Nevada mountains at 7,200 ft, spending time kayaking, swimming, and hiking at up to 8,500 ft.  One of the first things you notice is breathlessness and next you notice the amazing views:

The vista’s here are out of this world.  Every turn you take is a view to die for.  Miles upon miles of alpine vista’s and mountain lakes.

One of the dangers though are the wildlife.  I’ve only come across gophers, chipmunks, birds and deer.  Apparently these woods are full of bears, rattlers and even tourists…
