Snow on The Continental Divide

img_0066Believe it or not, I’m standing 12,000 ft above sea level as I take this picture at the top of the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

The crisp air is so chilly and fresh, you literally feel like you’re standing on top of the world. The energy that’s flowing through these peaks give you a feeling of vitality and sense of replenishment. We drove through Independence Pass to get here. In the photos below, you can see the blanket of pine trees on a mountain speckled with snow. I took a moment to taste the snow, it was awesome 🙂 Altitude sickness is a problem for many people; I didn’t feel its full wrath but I did experience dizziness + lightheadedness – wow!

    Slowly acclimatizing is probably what we need. We got sick really bad once on the way to Tibet!

    1. Agreed! Little things can help like ChlorOxygen concentrate in some water!

    Nice pictures! I’m hoping to hike along the Continental Divide Trail in a couple year. Missing those views! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
