Its too hard to choose my favorites from this place. so I think I will make a more than one post. It truly is a beautiful site. I could tell the elevation difference immediately as I soon as I started walking around. It been a while since I lived at a higher elevation, and it was evident. I think it may become a regular haunt for me as its close, photogenic, and free. When the land was donated to become a park it was stipulated it had to be called Garden of the Gods, it would remain forever free to the public, no building would be built except to maintain the park, and there would be no intoxicating beverages sold in the park.
