Chicago Cubs versus Cincinnati Reds

Wrigley FieldWhat an adventure after volunteering to get bumped from a flight for $500, I dumped my luggage at the every hotel I was put up at for the night and headed off to the Chicago Cubs baseball game.

After a van ride, a train ride, and a bus ride, I finally made it to the game.  In the end, the Cincinnati Reds finished off the Chicago Cubs 6 to 1.

I got back to the hotel room at around 12:30 AM just so I could get back up at 5:30 AM.

The Crags & Devil’s Playground Trails

Reservoir View from The CragsI hiked to The Crags, which provides wonderful view of the North Catamount Reservoir,  Crystal Reservoir, and Divide Colorado.  It was very windy at the top.

After hiking back down, I switched to the Devil’s Playground Trail, which is the back trail to summit Pike’s Peak.  I only wanted to hike to the tree line due to my limited time. The panorama photo below is from above the tree line on the way to the Devil’s Playground.


The hike was 10 miles overall and about 2,800 feet total ascent.
