We didn't lack enough oxygen in Bogota so we headed higher to Monserrate to overlook the 3rd highest capital city. Monserrate's highest point is 3,152 m (10,341 ft) on Wikipedia but there's a sign that says 3,170 meters. Whichever figure is right, it's fairly high even though it didn't look like a huge move up from the 2,640 m (8,660 ft) elevation of Bogota.
not very high? criss-cross of funicular rail and cable car cables
well, we did need a funicular to get up there
and it passed through a tunnel
cable car for the down trip
in the clouds
a wonderful lunch overlooking the clouds and rain
headed outside for a clearing view but another bank of clouds and rain rolled in fast...
we took the cable car back down the mountain in the clouds
a little clearer at the bottom but the rain was still coming down
