Vacation! Montana feels BIG. While on this hike it really felt like there were bears around, so we were singing and talking the whole way.

Unrelated to bears, I have not been feeling great, knocked out all day - nauseous, so so tired, vertigo-ish, and out of it. Bit of neck pain / headache. My money is on pre-migraine, all of those symptoms have occurred before with migraine. Took migraine meds right before hike, though. (new miracle drug called Nurtec, no drowsiness!)

After hike: lots of driving, navigating while driving (looking down at my phone.) And maybe recovering from the travel day, which was honestly kind of brutal (for me, anyway) - 2 different planes and a 2 hour drive, then talking with Airbnb host when my whole body was screaming for shower and food. Been hydrating like a mofo.

Could elevation be a part of it, I wonder?

Home - 290 ft
Airbnb - 1880 ft in Troy, MT
Ross creek cedars - 2880 ft
Back to Troy.

Hoping to wake up feeling great tomorrow so we can do some longer hikes.

Elevation doesn't always kick in until you're closer to a mile (5,280') high, in my experience, but dehydration has an affect. I learned on my first visit to Colorado to drink-drink-drink as much as you can manage (without overdoing it, of course).

Enjoy your trip, once this settles down!

Already feeling so much better -- thank you, Janet! Didn't think it could be elevation but I am known to be super sensitive to a lot of things other people aren't.
