If you are use to an elevation lower than Helena's 4,157 feet above sea level, you may experience some side effects from the high altitude. What are some of the effects? You may feel lightheaded, dizzy, thirsty, have headaches, breathing problems, sleeplessness, or heart palpations. To make you high altitude experience more pleasurable make sure to drink plenty of water, plan your first couple of days to include lots of rest periods so your body has time to adjust, and avoid alcohol because one drink in at higher elevations can equal three drinks at sea level. If you are under a doctor's care, it is also a good idea to let him or her know you are planning a trip that will include higher elevations. They may have additional tips or wish to change medication levels, etc.
