Garden Of The Gods 5/25/12

On May 25, 2012, we toured Garden Of The Gods located in the city of Colorado Springs, CO. This was a spectacular experience. The color contrast of the area was an amazing sight to behold. The rock formations, stunning, and the weather was perfect. We toured the whole park, then went up into the mountains and go a great view of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs, and the surrounding area. It was an awesome experience, one I would definitely do again one day. We spent basically the entire day up there, with no storms to chase nearby, this was definitely a nice alternative. We were over 9,000ft up at one point. The reddish color to the rocks and dirt was accented nicely by the sun as it set as well. Below is a collection of images from the tour through Garden Of The Gods and up into the mountains, including images of Pikes Peak. Click any image thumbnail for larger view. We were treated to a lovely sunset over the mountains also, I have included a time lapse video, and also a short video viewing Garden Of The Gods and more from in the mountains, enjoy!!
