Despite physical barriers and warnings of $2,650 in fines and 90 days of jail time, protesters showed up to the Manitou Incline on Saturday, according to the Gazette.

Meanwhile, I spent Saturday drinking White Claws at the lake, so my hat's off to these very fit protesters.

The Manitou Incline, which has been closed since March 17 due to COVID-19, has "incliners" frustrated, as other trails and parks have already reopened.

Mar Rickman posted to the Manitou Incline, Everything's Better on the Incline, Facebook page with the idea for this demonstration. Over 100 people showed up ready to hike in an effort to have the Incline officially reopened.
