Voodoo Doughnut: “The Magic is in the Hole!”

If you’re a big doughnut junkie, chances are you’ve seen features on Voodoo Doughnut on the Travel Channel or Food Network… or whatever. They are based out of Oregon… Portland and Eugene. So imagine my surprise when my brother told me they have a shop now in Denver over on Colfax! I knew I had to at least see what all the buzz was about.

So, one day, we went pretty late in the evening and got in a line that went out the door. I wasn’t feeling too adventurous, so I got the “Dirt,” which is pretty much vanilla frosting and crushed Oreos on top of a yeast doughnut. Not too bad. though I must admit I don’t really care for topping on my doughnut. I like the texture of a doughnut with perhaps maybe glaze, sprinkles, or flavor inside… I don’t like thing throwing off the dough-ey texture… But that’s just me.

I went back again the day before I left Denver so I could pack a box and bring it home for family and friends. There was quite the variety to choose from… but I settled on Buttermilk Bar (buttermilk dough with glaze), Cinnamon Sugar doughnut, Bacon Maple Doughnut Bar, the Marshall Mathers (M&Ms on top), another Dirt with Oreos, Portland Cream (Bavarian Cream and chocolate frosting) and the Voodoo Doll (Raspberry filling with chocolate frosting stuck with a pretzel stake). They were all pretty unique

I really enjoyed the Portland Cream. Reminded me of a Boston Cream Pie, actually. The Maple Bacon was interesting. I liked the maple doughnut. I liked the bacon. But I liked them separately… The other ones I didn’t really get to try, but they all looked pretty. 

I need to try more of their doughnuts to get a better feel for them, but I feel like I’d prefer their more normal doughnuts. The cereals and toppings don’t really do it for me. Talking with a few locals from Portland in the airport, I got the feeling that while they were proud that Voodoo was in their hometown, most agreed that it’s a tourist hotspot where locals don’t really go to very often. If you’re in Oregon or Denver, of course, go get you a doughnut. The eccentricity of the place is enough to give you a good laugh, and if you pick up a good doughnut, then there’s a plus!

The Stairway to Heaven

The Manitou Incline

Manitou Springs, Colorado

Constructed in the early 20th century, the Manitou Incline was originally meant for cable cars to haul materials up Pike’s Peak to build pipelines. After some time, the incline’s usage became more of a tourist attraction, and folks were able to go up the mountain in the cable cars. In 1990, a rock slide damaged significant sections of the railway. The rail company decided not to fix the railway and instead dismantled a lot of the rail line. Hikers and fitness enthusiasts began realizing that the remnants of the track actually made for quite the hike, and so they began mounting up the steep vertical pathway. It was actually illegal until 2013 because parts of the incline went through private property. As of February 2013, however, it is now perfectly legal! And it has become quite the challenge for folks looking to get a great workout in. 

My brother told me about the Incline. My friends suggested I try it. And I love to hike, so I thought, why not? I was told it was pretty steep and quite the workout, but I wasn’t too phased. I am a bit afraid of heights, so that was my only concern… but that turned out to not be too scary at all. I’m in decent shape… not the best, but definitely not terribly bad. The worst part about going up the Incline was the thin air and lack of oxygen. I’m a Georgia boy from the coast… at sea level. Plenty of oxygen. But I was definitely feeling the effects of the altitude. I just couldn’t get enough oxygen as I was climbing, so I was getting pretty light-headed. Frequent stops were a must for me. While my body doesn’t really ache that much, it was mostly the fact that it was hard to breathe that made it a challenge for me. It took nearly 1.5 hours to hike up this 1-mile trail. And it’s not called the “Incline” for nothing. This baby goes up over 2,000 feet in that 1-mile, with grades at steep as 68%. That’s pretty insane. I’m so glad I tackled this hike. It’s definitely the most vertically challenging hike I’ve ever accomplished. 

Other than the amazing views from all aspects of the Incline, you meet friendly people along the way who encourage you and cheer you on. They’re fellow hikers who are trying to accomplish the same task you are, and it’s a great feeling of camaraderie that is exhibited here. It’s wonderful. I got to hear stories and talk to a lot of people both on the way up and on the 4-mile trail back down. Cool stuff. 

So anyway, I would definitely recommend the Incline at Manitou Springs for all you avid hikers out there. If you’re not in shape, you may want to think twice. If you think you’re in shape, you might have to reevaluate after you take on this beast! 

NOTE: The Manitou Incline is closed for repairs through November 2014, so it will not be open to the public until likely Spring 2015.
