My asthma and flat-land brain didn't take too kindly to a sudden burst of activity at 14,000 feet. Turns out a snack break and some water were just what I needed. Once I felt better, we hopped in the car and headed down the mountain to begin the "meandering" part of the trip that the toll booth personnel spoke of earlier. Now we could stop at a few of the photo op places we drove by on the way up to the summit. We passed by mile 19 in the photos below.
