into the woods

Email me: alison.gwinn@denverlifemagazine.com The first time I went camping in Colorado, I was woefully ill prepared. A flatlander hiking in the Maroon Bells, I ignored my boyfriend’s advice to let him know the instant I felt any blisters forming inside my new hiking boots. Valuing stoicism over intelligence, I failed to let him know I was in pain until we reached our first night’s campsite, at which point I took off my boots and realized that my heels were raw and my socks soaked in blood. Big mistake. But it taught me a lesson: Heed the advice of the more experienced when it comes to anything outdoors, particularly camping. That goes double—triple even!—if you’re camping with kids. In “Family Camping Made Easy,” p. 62, we’ve put together how- to guides, gear checklists,…

Riders Up! Seven days. Eight towns. Thousands of feet in elevation gain. 445 miles. And all on two wheels. That’s the best way to summarize this year’s Ride the Rockies, now in its 34th year. The ride, from June 9 to 15, will start in Crested Butte and follow a loop that takes intrepid bicyclists over Monarch Pass, Independence Pass, and McClure Pass, alongside the College Peaks and through the Gunnison and Roaring Fork valleys. The ride, run by the Denver Post Community Foundation, helps support nonprofits throughout the state (since 2001, $585,000 has been raised and donated). Wanna see the ride up close? There are a number of volunteer opportunities available, from running aid stations to marking the route to driving SAG wagons. ridetherockies.com…

field day

Fans of the Rockies may have cheered their way through ballgames from the nosebleeds, the Rockpile, the luxury boxes, or anywhere in between, but few have seen a game the way LIZ BERLIN has. For the last 11 years, Berlin has spent more than 40 games per season huddled in the catwalk behind the out-of-town scoreboard in right field, operating it by hand. “I’ve loved baseball since high school,” Berlin says. “I had a boyfriend who played, and I always used to keep score.” Decades later, she’s still at it—albeit on a slightly larger stage—one of just a few people left in the country who manage major-league scoreboards the old-fashioned way, by hanging physical panels with numbers and letters. How does the scoreboard work? • “It’s actually quite easy. It’s made up…
