I'm considering a week-long vacation in Colorado, and I'm wondering about altitude sickness. Is this something I should be concerned about, given the high elevation of cities in Colorado?
I read through a string of posts on another travel guide's forum on altitude sickness and how to avoid it in Colorado. The cities I'm looking into now are Breckenridge, Vail, and Aspen. Of the three, Breckenridge's elevation is the highest by far (9600).
I plan to do quite a bit of hiking. By the way, while I'm young and fit I am not accustomed to high elevation (I live in NYC). Any thoughts would be appreciated.
