“Layers! Welcome to colorado, where we can have 40+ degree shifts throughout the day and we can go from sun, to rain, to sun, to lightening, to snow....all in the same day! bring layers that you can easily put on and take off throughout the day.”

“Local transit The local lightrail station is at 10th and osage. very convenient for getting around the region. there is also a b-cycle station right outside the building. i use it all the time, but pay attention to rates. can get expensive”
“Altitudes effect on alcohol There are lower oxygen levels at higher altitudes, which can impair the ability to metabolize alcohol, leading to quicker absorption and enhanced intoxication (in layman's terms, you may get drunk faster and have worse hangovers). drink lots of water!”
“Drink lots of water! You are in the high desert and at high elevation. drink lots of water (more than you normally would closer to sea level). if you start getting headaches, nausea, or dizziness, it could be due to the altitude.....take a break, sit down, and drink lots of water.”
“Drink extra water to avoid altitude sickness Being a mile above sea level means that you need to drink extra water to stay hydrated and feeling well!”
