Garden of the Gods in Colorado is a 1300-acre rock garden composed of spectacular red sandstone formations, sculpted by rain and wind over millions of years, whose appearance changes with and is enhanced by the sun’s movement throughout the day. Coming here puts you in your place. You start to believe in Santa Claus, Leprechauns and Unicorns because it is almost impossible to see all these contorted, twisting, brightly colored rocks and not think of some mystical spirit in the air.
What a spectacular natural display; like some beautiful and mythological setting full of grandeur and color! If you like nature – and even if you don’t – this gorgeously unexpected mix of green shrubbery and almost desert will knock your socks off with red monolithic rocks that shoot up toward the sky and winding paths amongst their underbrush. If you have the time, come during different times of the day to observe the effect of the sunlight on the rocks.
Garden of the Gods has it all from beautiful, majestic scenery to fantastic views of Colorado Springs. At only 1.5 hours from Denver, CO there’s no reason not to drive down to this awe-inspiring natural wonder to enjoy its picturesque sunrises and sunsets or a night under the stars. Garden of the Gods is a juxtaposition of the balance of nature and man throughout the year. The name of this place says it all.
