My son and I will end our West Coast baseball viewing trip this summer by stopping in Denver on our way home to Indiana to see a couple of Rockies games. We will fly in from San Francisco on a Friday afternoon to see a 7 p.m. Rockies game. We will also attend a 6 p.m. Saturday game. Sunday is intended to be a visit to the Air Force Academy and Pike's Peak before flying home on Monday morning from either Colorado Springs or Denver.
In addition to getting Coors Field added to our list of MLB parks visited, we would like to add Wyoming to our list of states visited and we would like to cross the Continental Divide.
Clearly our time to do this is Saturday before the 6 pm game. I can see that we can easily get to Cheyenne and back - but what would be the best way to satisfy the Continental Divide portion of the trip as well in a Saturday morning/afternoon trip?
And I don't think I want to try to do the AFA, Pike's Peak and a ride to the Continental Divide all on Sunday?
I will look at flights to get us to Denver early enough on Friday to go to Loveland Pass, but I don't think that we will be able make that happen.
Thanks in advance for your help. TA is invaluable to our trip planning as we always try to do too much in too little time.
