Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, CO (Fri.5/9)

It should be a lower case g in Garden of the Gods, but it's clear why the name...

Everything is free except the video in the visitors center (which is just a few bucks).

The 12 minute video explained how the rocks got there. Since I didn't catch the whole process of the rock formation I needed to simplify my take away from the video. The rocks went through a lot to get here so we better enjoy them.


No scrambling allowed, No going over 10 feet above the ground without a permit and climbing gear. We pretty much followed the rules, but it was hard. The boys love to climb.
