The 3rd day of our trip was filled with extreme highs and extreme lows for me. All in all, a crazy exciting day!!!
I still get butterflies when we pull up to a new mountain!!
We went to Powder Mountain. A definite local spot. This resort was huuuuuuge! Like the name states, everything was covered in fresh powder.
The lifts were scenic to say the least.
I was really excited!
After my 2nd run (about 2 seconds after I took this cheesy picture), my legs cramped up so badly, it felt like a charlie horse from my calves to my quads. I was dizzy, and a little disoriented. I called it quits around noon. I got sick (bleh!). I gulped down about 5 or 6 cups of water and felt better once we drove to lower ground.
After this trip, I have a new-found respect for water. The altitude (11,000 feet up) dehydrated the body. I underestimated what water (or lack there of) can do to somebody.
Water is nothing to mess with.
