Today I climbed the Manitou Incline with my husband! It’s a hiking trail on the side of a mountain that’s basically a vertical mile. It’s constructed out of over 2,500 steps (and my Fitbit says it took 3,500 footsteps to complete).
The trail down takes a more gradual descent for four miles, so it was a longer day on the trails. We’re training to climb to the top of Pikes Peak later this summer, and this was one of our first major challenges along the way. Later this month we plan to climb our first fourteener (a mountain over 14,000 feet tall). Wish us luck!
