Last Saturday found us enjoying a few of the beautiful places in and around "The Springs." Here we are ready to go into the park area of The Garden of the Gods which is 5 minutes outside of the main city.
Pikes Peak is in the background and had a big role in the formation of The Garden because of the uplift caused by the enormous massif of the mountain along with some fault lines. The formations which are sandstone, limestone, and sedimentary conglomerates are VERY narrow and tall, giving them the appearance of frozen ice sheets or something similar just stuck sideways into the dirt.

So beautiful. I do miss the Colorado and Utah sunsets.
