Garden of the Gods

A small park, but worth a visit if you are in or around Colorado Springs.  The red rock formations are a beautiful backdrop to the short trails, and it’s an easy, quick visit if you’re heading from Denver to the Great Sand Dunes National Park.  While it was crowded with a bunch of rowdy little kids out of school for spring break on our visit, I imagine if you go during a regular week it’s much more peaceful and serene.  While one of the shorter trips with the least amount of hiking, we still enjoyed the visit.  I wish we’d been able to stay until dusk.  I can only imagine the number of bats stuffed into the nooks and crevices of the formations.  Could have been an interesting sight.
