This is quintessential Colorado with a close up view of yucca plants, red sandstone rocks and a 14,000+ foot snow-capped mountain in the background. Additionally the red rocks are part of Garden of the Gods, an oft-visited city park in Colorado Springs and the fourteener is "America's Mountain", Pikes Peak. Always a favorite with tourists and serious photographers alike, these icons represent the beauty of the American west.
