Traveling to Colorado

Postby Spiegepj » Wed May 30, 2007 4:59 pm

I am traveling to Colorado over the 4th of July and was wondering if there is anything I should do beforehand to avoid getting sick because of the high altitude. Thanks

Unless you're going to be mountain climbing, or doing something extremely exerting, like running a marathon in high altitude, you won't be high enough to get altitude sickness. You may find yourself feeling more lathargic than usual, but that's about it. Colorado is an amazing state, enjoy your visit!

The altitude won't make you sick. It will make you sunburned. And July in Denver is pretty hot, you'll be tired. Drink plenty of fluids.

I usually go to Boulder (near Denver) every summer, which I beieve is pretty high up, and I've never had a problem. It does get very hot there around that time though.

The only time I had a problem when I went there was going up to Pike's Peak. Just walking around I'd say you'd be fine, but still drink plenty of water.

What if you get drunk and have log roll races across a 4-lane road at 2 a.m. in Denver? How will the altitude affect the tumblers?
