I was really excited to visit Garden of the Gods from the pictures I had seen on the internet. The rock formations seemed unreal and seeing them in person is amazing.
The parking lot gives you a glimpse of how majestic these formations are but it's the walking path that really shows them off.
The path winds its way through the rocks giving you different angles and views. The rocks seem to jut up from the ground out of nowhere.
It's hard to gauge just how massive they are until you get right up next to them.
This location isn't just a place for sight seers many rock climbers and hikers come to enjoy the park.
There's a lot of good places for kids to climb and crevasses to check out.
The Siamese Twins formation has a small window where you can see Pike's Peak.
Even with the 90 degree heat the rocks weren't too hot to touch.
What's nice is if you wanted to avoid the crowds there were several trails that lead to more secluded places.
I liked this place so much I almost came back again before we left Colorado. We spent 4-5hrs there and I still feel there was plenty more to discover. I think this park is a must see if you're in Denver.
