I can't breathe!!!!

The drive starts out with this blissful Arapaho Reservoir view at Grand Lake, Colorado.

Then you enter Rocky Mountain National Park, and before you know it, there is no oxygen. The road climbs into the alpine ecosystem, devoid of trees and oxygen at 12000 feet.

There are other things, though, like breathtaking views, snow, alpine flowers, elk, pica, and white knuckle drop offs down the mountain that were always on my side of the vehicle. I had several panic attacks and a slight headache from the altitude.

Worth it? You betcha.
