In a sense I think it is safer then driving or walking across a street.

Kenny, true but that's why its stupid to go hiking on your own. One of my best friends is a paramedic, who goes hiking with me. Plus I'm certified in FirstAid, it's called preparing. You take risks when you walk out your door. I'd just rather feel like I conquered something when I take my risks.

Kenny I live at over 10,100 feet and I hike the 14ers here in Colorado a lot. I'm still alive, in fact I feel better when I do hike, or climb....because I'm in the outdoors, not inside a cramped room.

@kenny12: 10,000 feet isn't that dangerous depending on the mountain, especially if you are hiking, not climbing. If you go somewhere like Alaska, I suppose cold would be a concern. So choose your mountain carefully, pack appropriately, and tell someone where you you are going, and bring a friend.

Guys, I'm actually shocked. I hiked Mt. Lassen (10,500 ft. or so) at 11 (12 now). I would've thought more people would've been up 10,000 feet. By the way, it is Mt. Lassen Volcanic National Park in California.

Em414 it means 10000 ft above sea level. You could be on a flat plain and say yes.

I'm scared of heights. I wouldn't be able to move if I was that high up. O_o

07/08/11 3:13 pm

Live in Wyoming. If you haven't hiked that high here or in the rockies (love the map) you really haven't lived here. Or visited honestly. YELLOWSTONE DOESN'T COUNT!

I hike pretty high up but never 10,000 feet.


07/08/11 9:13 am

I love our mountains! Not so hard to get to 10,000 feet when home is a "Mile High".....people at sea level think they have it good! Lol

It follows the Rocky Mountains! lol

Yes when we went to Yellowstone a few years ago. We hiked all over the place. Stayed in Gardiener Wyoming... Not sure of the town name is spelled right. I think it had a "I" in it though...

I will be in about a week lol then I'll change my answer

The mountains I live by are just shy of 10k feet and I hike to the top of them all the time.

Chimney Rock in Colorado felt that tall but turns out it's only around 7600 feet.


07/07/11 10:05 pm

I don't no if the mountains in Tennessee count. hard to know. I don't keep track of sea level, unlike the average person....
