We stayed a week in Wyoming and Colorado at altitudes of great than 5,280ft, sadly that meant very little to Helen.

Yeah, after the first couple of posts I was in a rhythm it probably had it down to about 10 minutes per post/day, and then resizing them all back from original size to something a bit more forum friendly, so probably 6-8 hours work, but I did get to revisit just about every one of the 1200+ photos I took on the trip, which was a great ride back down memory lane.

The highest we got to was at Hoosier Pass, near Breckenridge. Even at 11,539ft, Helen was not feeling well, so we crossed Pikes Peak and Mt Evans off our list. We didn't think it prudent to go another 3,000ft higher.
