Easter Sunday we drove up to Mt. Lemmon just for the heck of it. It is more than 8000 ft. in altitude and there was still enough snow for skiing. I brought my painting supplies with big plans to paint, but unfortunately I only painted this pine. The altitude got me--headache and feeling punk, so this is all I have to show for the trip.
I recognized the symptoms because when we were in the volcano on Maui I had the same thing happen, only worse, the altitude there was over 11,000 ft.
So I guess I will just stay away from high mountains.
