I was working in Colorado Springs, Colorado, so I went up to the Manitou Incline again for a workout.  I reached the top in good time and ran into Jeff Kunkle who had recently returned from climbing Denali.  We visited a while before I decided to head back down.  After dropping a couple of hundred feet, I surprisingly ran into Kevin Baker.  I returned back to the top of the incline with him and then we ran back down the side trail which ties back into the Barr Trail.
