She took us hiking in the Spring Mountains near the Mount Charleston Area. 

We went on the Bristlecone Trail which starts out at 8000’ and the trail goes up another 1000’ ft and I am still here to tell you that there is not much air up there!  We felt as if we basically went almost straight up and then came straight down.
