[cdt-l] Day hiking at high elevations



We're headed for the Rockies, and I've never been over 7,000 feet before. 
Since I live pretty much at sea level, does anyone have any general advice on 
how to handle day hiking at elevations I'm likely to encounter (up to 14,000 
feet)? It obviously isn't the same as the slow acclaimation to elevation that 
a backpacker can do.  

Cheers, Sandy
