Garden of the Gods

The Garden of the Gods, a city park in Colorado Springs, has shown up in a couple of book series our family has been reading lately, so we set aside a little time yesterday morning to visit the park and view some of its fascinating rock formations.

The red rocks and cliffs here really stand out against their surroundings. This one is called Balanced Rock for obvious reasons. It weighs 700 tons, so let's all hope it continues to be balanced.

The Kissing Camels are on the top of this rock. Can you see them? The right camel's head and hump are visible while you can only see the left camel's head. There is a small hole underneath their heads.

The park is a very nice place to visit with lots of trails to enjoy during a peaceful morning.

However, we found no entryways into the Labyrinth. Sorry, Percy.
