Altitude Adjustment

Day 23 - Altitude Adjustment

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

With insomnia being one of the symptoms of altitude sickness, we woke much later than usual after stretches of sleeplessness through the night.

Mt. Crested Butte was still hiding in the clouds on our morning walk with Solo.

At one point in the morning, I left the room, and in the hotel hallway a young man looked at me and said, "You are Bobby's aunt, you look just like his mom." I was shocked, but quickly realized the close group of our nephews' friends living in CB. We had a chat with Chris Dean, and said we'd try to meet up for a group dinner. Too funny!

With suppressed appetites, we dressed for our 10am spa appointments. Bill and I had a relaxing massage at the hotel.

We were happy to finally get a glimpse of the butte afterwards. The sun was in and out, and the clouds over the mountain top drifted away. Beautiful.

After a quick drive through Kebler Pass, we walked up and down Main Street. It's the friendliest town ever!

Ally met us at Elevation's bar 9380 for a drink and we picked up Jim at the condo. It was fun to see their space and Jim's artwork decorating the pad.

Jim and Ally treated us to a yummy dinner at Select Stash. We dropped them back at the condo and said our goodbyes.

Entering our hotel, we bumped into Deaner and his friend again. They were on their way to the hot tub, and we were on our way to bed !
