Garden of the Gods

We left our hotel at the base of Cheyenne Mountain and headed towards the Garden of the Gods Park.  As we got closer to the park, you could see the sandstone rock formations.

We spent several hours here walking around. The sun was out at first but then the dark clouds started to move in and it started to drizzle right before we were leaving. What a magical place this was. I probably could have spent all day here but it was starting to rain and I was hungry.  I’m sure during peak tourist season in the summer it’s not as much fun. There wasn’t a lot of people around so it almost felt like we had the entire place to ourselves.  This park is more than just a few pictures here and there so To Be Continued…
