Garden of the Gods
Cool rock formation
Recognized as a National Natural Landmark, Garden of the Gods is a wonder to behold. The unique red rock formations came to be millions of years ago, as a result of geological turbulence along a Colorado fault line. People have been visiting the site since 1330 BC. Today, the attractions include hiking, rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, and more. There is a visitor’s center that details the history of Garden of the Gods, as well as educates on local plant and wildlife, geology, and more. The center also hosts occasional programs and events for children, students, and adults. Be sure to take photos with the ‘Sentinel Spines’ and the ‘Balanced Rock,’ two of the most popular, and awe-inspiring formations.
