Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day
Keith didn’t think he was going to make it to the summit of the flatirons. He’s from Pennsylvania, but made the trip out to Boulder so he could visit a friend. Keith was worried that hiking mountains that are already a mile high would prove to be difficult. He was especially worried about getting altitude sickness and suffering through horrible headaches – which have been a problem for him in the past. After hearing stories from friends and family that have visited, he was expecting to be out of breath and in need of oxygen almost immediately. But, on the contrary, he found it much easier than he’d thought to cope with the altitude. In fact, he was quite proud that he summited, and stood above Boulder with arms stretched wide, looking as if he was on top of the world.
