After 9 hours of traveling thanks to a 5-hour layover and flight times, I’ve finally made it to Colorado. The air is definitely thinner up here, but I’ve been drinking water like crazy to prevent the altitude sickness everyone has been warning me about. So far, I feel fine. But I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
I was surprised at how warm and sunny it is here. It’s quite a change from the dreary winter weather of New York. But it’s a change I’ve welcomed with open arms.
This morning, I got my first taste of the Rocky Mountains as my friend was driving me around. She was right. The views are breathtaking. I took a couple pictures on my phone, but they don’t do it justice. I’m hoping to get better snapshots before I leave. The picture below is one I took from the car ride.
I’ll keep posting throughout the trip!
