It was so dry and high I had nose bleeds every morning for the first 5 days. Distance gets all messed up too, when you can see 55 miles on a straight line it makes it hard to determine how far that next 'hill' is without looking at a map. I do love hiking where there are no trails though, reminded me of Alaska.I did some hunting up around 10,000 feet in CO a few years ago. i had trouble finding the trail back down to the car...my orientation was just all screwed up. Luckily, i had a native with me at the time who assured me the "trail is this way". You do not necessarily notice you are short of O2, just start acting squirrely.
