Mt. Lemmon Pine - Teri Casper

Mt. Lemmon Pine
Originally uploaded by Teri DC
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.

  1. Wow, it really looks like a tall tree Teri, lovely! Sorry to hear about the altitude sickness - I sometimes get that feeling at the coast with the humidity and the heat.
