Travel:
We expect that, if relevant, you will make your own travel/lodging arrangements to/in Santa Fe.
We suggest all participants stay in a hotel located in the downtown area of Santa Fe. We will provide daily shuttles for participants staying in the downtown area and who specify the need for a shuttle on their registration form.
We recommend the following hotels:

High Altitude: Please note that Santa Fe is located in northern New Mexico at an elevation of 7,000 feet (2,130 meters) in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. High altitudes can be stressful to your body if you are not accustomed. Here are some tips on how to prevent altitude sickness:

1.Drink lots of water: What you might think is altitude sickness might actually be dehydration, caused by the higher rate of water vapor lost from the lungs at higher altitudes.[1] Avoid caffeine and alcohol, as these can increase the likelihood of dehydration.

2.Take it easy: The last thing you would want to do is to overexert yourself. It is harder to breathe at higher altitude and even if you are fit, you can still feel the effects if you push yourself too hard too quickly. Resting at the altitude at which you became ill is often the most effective remedy for altitude sickness (other than descent). You'll usually feel better in 1-2 (or up to 4) days.

Symptoms:

  1. persistent dry cough
  2. fever
  3. shortness of breath even when resting
  4. headache that does not respond to analgesics
  5. unsteady walking
  6. increasing vomiting
  7. gradual loss of consciousness
