  • Notes: There is a valley near the base of Pikes Peak known since the mid-19th century as the Garden of the Gods. It is a garden not of flowers, but of rock - of kissing camels and stone toadstools, balanced rocks and mammoth sandstone walls tilted upward toward the Colorado sky. Travel-writer Ernest Ingersoll once called this garden "a gigantic peep-show in pantomime." Novelist Helen Hunt thought it "the very climax of some supernatural catastrophe" And all-American hero Charles A. Lindbergh was fully convinced that he had never seen "more spectacular and magnificent place."
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Gear: Long Pants, Hiking Shoes, WATER and a Camera!
