The intensity of UV increases with altitude – there’s less atmosphere to absorb sunrays. Unfortunately, I was too excited about riding at Mt. Hood last week (JULY SNOW!!!) and totally ignored skincare, which resulted in a burn. Yup, total rock lobster, but a happy one. After some great meetings with colleagues at our Albany lab and Oregon State earlier during the week, I took a day of leave to ride Mt. Hood.
