    I live at above 5000'. Most of my summer fishing is at 7000' or above.

    Scratch that. Garmin says 7360. I have an app call GPS kit on the iphone that says 7276. No idea which is right but they are close.

    According to the National Weather Service, the altitude here is 249 feet. There is a GPS function on my field camera and it indicates the same... so, either the GPS function on the camera is correct or it is linked to the National Weather Service :D

    322 feet, but . . . you may have seen a different answer had I viewed this thread last night after a day had gone to crap & I spent a few hours recovering in the tying room while sipping generous portions of whiskey (I think they were generous portions; either that or I experienced a significant evaporation event.).
