The Garden Of The Gods
Photo By James H Egbert

  • Title: The Garden Of The Gods
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Interstate 25
  • Nearest Town: Colorado Springs
  • Brief Directions: The Garden of the Gods is located near the city of Colorado Springs (less than an hour south of Denver on Interstate 25). Take highway 24 west off of I-25. There are numerous signs and the GPS coordinates are not necessary to locate the area. Please see the link below for complete write up. I can submit a MS Word Doc file. http://www.naturephotographynaturally.com/gog-travelogue.htm
  • 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!
