Have you ever been hiking or climbing above 10,000 feet elevation? (UserQ)
In a sense I think it is safer then driving or walking across a street.
You are proberly right it might be safer than driving or crossing the 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.
rugby90. Good for you when you drop dead up there rescue is along ways away.
These people are all lazy and fat that haven't hiked that high
I live at 18 feet above sea level. On my walks I go yo 0 feet. we did go to Leadville CO worked did not hike.
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.
@bearcat i suppose some people like to do that kind of thing,but it not safe and you risk your life doing that.I hope your life insurance man doesn't get a whiff of you climbing mtns. or iyour life ins could get cancelled
@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.
Why would anyone in their right mind do such a stupid thing.they must have a death wish.
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.
I once "hiked" from my seat to the bathroom on a plane at 45,000'. So ya I have!
I'm not sure I don't think so...
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
Mount McKinley in alaska woot
Wish Colorado bordered Virginia!
My backyard! Love it!
Gotta love the map with this question. I have a cabin in Leadville, Colorado which is above 10,000 ft.
lol @ the map
Laughed when I saw the map!
Does running count? If it does then yup
the map made me laugh out loud
U can tell where th U.S. Is over 10,000ft lol
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!
Lol everyone in the Rocky Mountain states said yes :)
I'd love too.
I love the map! :D
Does skiing count?
This makes me miss MT and CO. Used to live there... Now have to stick to NC mtns. Beautiful, but not majestic. :)
I hike pretty high up but never 10,000 feet.
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.
Have you ever been "hiking," or...climber a mountain. Lol. How random.
Winter is awesome. I love skinning up.
The air is clean and thin that high. I love high elevations. I have a handheld altimeter.
I live close to 10 thousand feet I just gotta climb a few mountains to get there!
Hell I've played basketball above 10,000! That should count for something ha
Colorado and K2!
Chimney Rock in Colorado felt that tall but turns out it's only around 7600 feet.
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....
Hiking in the Alps, what a trip!
