I'm honestly not 100% sure, but I think its:

Mauna Kea - 13,796 ft.

I went up there with my Uncle the astronomer to see the observatories there.

How about you?

I had to ask my ex who remembers all this stuff

Glacier National Park.
About 11,000 feet I think

Both of us remember feeling light headed and nauseous. I had no idea why I had no energy. It was the weirdest feeling.

Haleakala in Maui is just over 10,000, i think that's it for me.

I tried to think really hard if maybe I've been on some other mountain top, but then I realized that's the only place where I've noticed a difference in the air.
