I'll be hiking with RS in Colorado this summer and I'm a bit concerned about the altitude. I live at sea level and really won't have a chance to get in any 5000'+ hikes before the trip. The hiking on the Colorado trip will be up to 12000 feet. I went hiking in the Swiss Alps last summer and though the hikes not as high as the Colorado trip, I didn't experience any problems. I plan on arriving in Colorado a few days early to help adjust. Does anyone have any other tips that might help? I'm aware that I should go slow, drink lots of water, and avoid excess alcohol.
Thank you in advance.
