I had been commuting to Dallas, Texas, for the past two months, so when I returned to Colorado for good I decided to take a couple of days off from work.  Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate to go snow climbing or go to the high country, so I simply went down to Colorado Springs, Colorado, and did the incline and Rocky Mountain.  The last time I hiked the incline was May 2007, and my previous visit to Rocky Mountain was back in April 2005.
