A Quick Visit To Garden of the Gods- Colorado Springs

While heading back to Denver from Colorado Springs we decided to stop at Garden of the Gods, a National Natural Landmark.

We were in Colorado Springs for the BoardingArea Conference aka BAcon. The conference was a great experience. I learned some new things which I will try to put into practice to improve the blog in the future. I also met many great people and fellow bloggers, the bulk being from travel blog aggregator site BoardingArea.

There wasn’t much time for our visit since we had to get back to Denver to catch a flight to New Orleans. The park was very busy and it was hard finding a parking spot. When we finally found a spot, we were amazed at what we saw.
The rock formations were really impressive. They had a nice orange color which reminded me of the Olgas in the Australian Outback. We could also see the snow capped Pikes Peak which offered another great view.

After taking a few pictures of Kim and Lucas, it was time for some jumping shots.

I got to work, jumping right away and caused a few chuckles from other visitors in the process. I’m really happy with how the pictures came out!

While heading back to the car, I saw a guy juggling. It looked really cool with the blue sky and the pins flying in the air. The pictures were so awesome that I offered to e-mail them to the juggler.

If you decide to visit Colorado Springs, I’d definitely recommend a visit to the Garden of Gods. It’s probably a good idea to get there early since this seemed to be a very popular sight. I’d love to go back and have more time to explore the park in the future.

Garden of Gods is located at 1805 N.30th St in Colorado Springs, CO. You can read more about the park online HERE.
