With the Avs' dominance, it may seem like a no-brainer, but some may start grumbling if former Hershey, Pennsylvania, farm-club coach Bob Hartley doesn't lead his team to the Stanley Cup promised land again. Still, it's hard to fault Hartley's handling of the team. And based on what's happened so far this season, it's entirely possible that he could overshadow perennial fan fave Mike Shanahan as the most popular coach around.

A tough, lightning-fast senior from Chula Vista, California, Colorado State's 6'3" senior linebacker Rick Crowell led the Mountain West Conference last season with 125 tackles and was a first-team all-conference selection, as well as the league's most valuable player on defense. As the Rams compiled a 10-2 record and won their second straight conference title, Crowell led their fierce, stingy defense and in February was named CSU football's most valuable player.

Twenty miles south of Denver, the jumble of red rocks known as the Fountain Formation includes an outcropping that looks remarkably like George Washington's profile. The resemblance is so startling that the area in which the rock stands was known as Old Washington Park for years, until confusion with Denver's Washington Park inspired a new name: Roxborough Park. The best time to catch a glimpse of George, who stands to the west of Fountain Valley Trail, is during one of Roxborough's moonlight hikes.

Although it's sometimes difficult to tell the difference between the lights on E-470 and the light of the moon, the evening walks at the Plains Conservation Center, a 1,100-acre plot of preserved prairie, can still transport you to another time and place. The center hosts a walk during the full moons of every month except January and February. Each one celebrates a different feature of the natural world, but all delve into history, ecology and cultural stories about the moon. For instance, there's the Hunger Moon in March, when walkers carry warmed baked potatoes, and the Coyote Moon, during which you can call out to the local "moondogs" to see if they'll respond. All walks start at about 7:30 p.m., last a little more than two hours and end with a campfire and marshmallow roast. Everyone is invited, although reservations are required, and the center discourages small children because of the length of the walks.
