100% honest with me at all times about your physical condition. Trips will take place anywhere from a minimum of 5,000 feet all the way up to
14,000. Acclimating can be a process for some and for others not an issue at all.

numerous places in Colorado and have reached the summit of 6 of the 14er peaks. I've taken classes on GPS navigation, Avalanche Awareness,
winter hiking in the mountains, Wilderness First Aid and am a member of the Rocky Mountain Guide Association. I have camped on trail in
downpours/sleet/hail/snow storms and loved to tell about it.
