Going up into the mountains can be a jarring experience for those who have spent most of their life at sea level.
When you are going several thoUSnd feet up into the air some things can change.
The boiling point for water is slightly different, there is less oxygen, your ears may pop from the change in air pressure and so on and so forth. One of the things that struck myself and others about going up high into the mountains while in the Summer time was the much milder and dryer weather than I was used to. In the same section I visited, the winters can be drastically cold and the snow falls quite heavily. However, while in the Summer time the weather is drastically pleasant, most of the time. I was struck by how little Heating as well as Air Conditioning was needed up there! You are easily better off opening your windows for a nice breeze when it feels a bit too stuffy. I swear, I got a really good night’s rest doing this at night, though I needed an extra blanket! I am simply not used to weather conditionss that can naturally create the environment that the two of us try to create using our weather conditions control systems and dehumidifiers within our homes while in sizzling and humid weather. It was quite delightful. I took note of the fact that in several of the sites that I visited up there, a/cs were not even installed, though furnaces took a higher priority for sure. I am sure the people that live up in those mountains expansively use their furnaces while in the winter, but at the least, they get some absolutely pleasant weather while in the summer!
