Garden of the Gods

When Nicole and Lauren were visiting I made sure to save some of the really cool Colorado thing to do with them. So when they were finally here I couldn't wait to go to Garden of the Gods! Garden of the Gods is a city park and one of the top ten most visited parks in the country. The rocks are results of The outstanding geologic features of the park are the ancient sandstone and limestone sediments deposited horizontally, but have now been tilted vertically and faulted by the immense mountain building forces caused by the uplift of the Pikes Peak massif. It is absolutely beautiful and I would recommend going for a tour at 10am or 2pm. We went for the 10am tour and our guide was amazing! He was singing to us and pulling rocks out of his pockets and recommending places to go for lunch! Overall we had an amazing time!
