12,100 feet above sea level in the alpine tundra above the tree line at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Don’t let the shorts and sun fool you - it was both cold (50’s) and windy (seemed like 50-60 mph easy) up there. But it was worth it, driving and stopping to view the outstanding scenery along the park’s Trail Ridge Road - the highest paved continuous road in the United States.
