  1. Great, comprehensive post! The view from Pikes Peak must have been spectacular and I love the description of some of the mountains looking like an old man’s beard. You’ve got a knack for story-telling!

    1. Awww…thank you so much, Katherine! Pikes Peak has some of the most gorgeous views I’ve ever seen (albeit it was freezing)! Happy travels! ? xx – Anshula

  2. Loved your entertaining writing style…Absolutely worth the wait, the scenery is gorgeous. Wow!! The longest I’ve waited for an attraction is about 3 hours..this was getting to the entrance of Machu Picchu on the 1st of the year. Long wait but it opened up and was not too crowded. Looks like you were able to get amazing shots without people.
    Good to know about Pikes Peak and going off season!! Great article.

  3. Very thrilling and beautiful story. Pictures are great too.I liked your comparison of a mountain with an old man’s beard as well as many other descriptions. I enjoyed reading your story.

    1. Thanks, Melissa! Drinking water absolutely helps! I couldn’t imagine living at 10,000 feet above sea-level though (I’m a beach-girl but I guess after a while, you get used to the altitude). Hope you have a fabulous day! xx – Anshula

  4. This is such a great and informative post. Definitely saving this for later! I used to go to Colorado a few times a year and never had this issue until I got older!

    1. Thank you! Lake Tahoe is 6,000 feet above ground so just be sure to drink loads of water ? I’m sure your trip will be absolutely fabulous! Happy travels! xx – Anshula

  5. I feel like I was having trouble breathing while reading about this haha! I really like the idea of starting off slow and gradually working into especially the first day and with the sleeping arrangements I wouldn’t have thought to look for hotels within a certain sea level of where I came from!

    1. Oh, dear (I’ll work on hazier descriptions next time ?) . Going about it gradually is perfect for first-time high-altitude travelers (I sincerely wish I had done that on my first mountain escapade but I guess we all learn from our mistakes). I’m so glad that you liked the tips, Karlee! Happy travels! xx – Anshula
