Avoid Altitude Sickness:
Red River is located 8,750 ft above sea level, and Bittercreek is even higher: 9500 feet! If you’re traveling in from lower altitudes, you run the risk of experiencing altitude sickness. Here are some tips to help head it off:
- Eat Carbs: You need more calories at higher altitudes! Make sure to eat regularly and include lots of whole grains.
- Go easy on alcohol and smoking:Of course we want you to enjoy the libations, but be aware that alcohol will impact you more quickly at higher altitudes. And if you’re already feeling the symptoms of altitude sickness, things like alcohol, smoking and sleeping pills will worsen your illness.
- Stay hydrated:Drink plenty of water, and drink it regularly!
- Take it easy:If you feel symptoms coming on, slow down and rest.
Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:
Symptoms can range from mild to a medical emergency. Mild symptoms include headache, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, feeling tired, shortness of breath, faster heart rate, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite and generally not feeling well.
Seek medical attention if any of the above symptoms are intense, if you feel out of breath when resting, you have coughing that won’t stop, tightness or congestion in your chest, trouble walking, double vision, confusion, or your skin color changes to blue or gray.
