What's the highest elevation you've ever been? On land only, this doesn't include in a plane.

I would love to hear some stories!

Just a guess, I'm going to say 3001-5280. I've driven over many mountain passes and summits in my state. I know Snoqualmie Summit is over 3000 feet.

No idea really. But I've been to Denver, so at least that high?

Does skydiving count? I mean, my body was there exposed to the elements as I fell to earth at 14,000 feet

On land: about 5,000 feet climbing NH mountains.

I've climbed a number of 14,000 ft mountains. Mt. Elbert, at 14,440 ft, is the highest so far.

I guess it's the Timberline Lodge at 6,000 ft on Mt. Hood, Oregon.

There isn't one. I knew I should have made an infamous 'other' option, but I didn't think I needed to. Oh Well...

Mount Antero in Colorado at 14,276. We went there looking for Aquamarine and had one hell of day driving up the old mine trail to the top. The truck was gasping for air the whole trip. lol We didn't find any stones but we did come back with some awesome pic's and memories.

Sounds like fun. I bet you had some beautiful views to make up for not finding any stones!

Wow, that's a lot of driving!

I totally forgot I've been to Estes Park, Colorado -- that should be the highest elevation for me at 7,522 feet.

That was an educated guess on my part.

I live at 3500 feet above sea level and have climbed to the top of Granite Peak here in MT. It is over 12000 feet and it took two full days. This was a steep one!! I used to do a lot of climbing and such before I got in a car accident...now I just do light peaks and trails.

Not exactly sure, but my hometown had an elevation of about 5,100 ft. I think I've been a little higher than that.

I would have to guess around 10,000 feet. I have been on a lot of mountains, just not sure of their elevations at the moment.

I've climbed Mt Whitney in California 3x. It comes in just under 14,500 fasl. I have no plans to do it again - or go any higher.

I'm not sure what the elevation was exactly, but it was in Breckenridge Colorado and I actually got sick from it since I had spent the previous few days at sea level in texas.
