Cedar Breaks National Monument

It was off to Utah for a trip to celebrate the 4th of July. Janet had pneumonia and was advised by her doctor to not go to higher elevations. We were headed for Alton Utah, which is a upper middle altitude around 7,000 feet above sea level.

However, after driving a long way it was time for a side trip. We were off to Point Supreme at 10,350 feet. A casual walk at that elevation is not much of a big deal if you have been hiking at elevation. It was a destination that I thought Janet would enjoy seeing as she had never seen Cedar Breaks before.

We walked slowly down the paved path. She was a little short on air and thought she stop halfway and peer out and take a look. She was intrigued by what she saw and ventured even further, to the end of the trail to take in the view.

After viewing the beauty, we made our way back to the truck. Janet mentioned that she needed her inhaler. I asked her where it was. She answered, in my suitcase. I thought to myself, before any adventure with someone that may need an inhaler, I need to make sure they have it with them on the trail. Even if the trail is only about 100 yards long. We made it back to a lower elevation and everyone was better.
