Working with high altitude

This year I feel like I’ve been able to adjust pretty well to the high altitude. Day 4, and I’m not out of breath when I reach the top of the stairs. Nice!
Beautiful weather today, sunny and blue sky. I drove the van up above 12k feet for a night of high altitude sleeping. I slept pretty well. It was very quiet. No airplanes, no police helicopters, no car alarms, barking dogs, or anything else. Just total silence.
Headed out to climb the iconic Columbine Mountain. It tops out at 12,600, and is steep and loose just before the summit.
Hiyahh!
