The Manitou Incline near Colorado Springs, Colorado is said to be one of the most challenging and unique trails in the Country. Olympic athletes and military personnel train on this vertical wonder that gains 2,000 feet in elevation over less than 1 mile. >>> This looks very cool!
As manatees can’t survive in water below 60 degrees, they migrate to Kings Bay and the adjacent rivers every winter, which are an average 72 degrees all year round.
