Colorado Springs-Garden of the Gods
I visited my friend Doug in Colorado Springs a few weekends back, and we toured around Garden of the Gods. I am from Arizona and have seen the red rocks in Sedona, but this park was gorgeous, since Pike's Peak was in the background. The weather was perfect, in the 70s, and it was a great way to spend the morning.
We did a little bit of scrambling (climbing on the rock formations), and unfortunately found a sign that we were not supposed to be participating in this activity. Oops. :)
Nevertheless, we had a great time wandering the park, taking in the scenery and the wildlife. The pictures of the deer didn't turn out all that well, but it was amazing to come around a corner and see two deer just down the ravine.
