A World MUST SEE Red Rocks masterpiece located in Colorado Springs. Voted the best city park in the Country and the second best in the World. Long story short if you live in Colorado and you haven't been, get in the car and GO! The second you drive up to the park, you will be amazed with the views and ability to explore the multi-use trails that take you around the towering formations. Garden of the Gods has been one of my favorite places for Engagement Sessions and Elopements with multiple beautiful locations around the park to really give you a stunning variety of the mountains, red rocks, and nature. There are well known sights including the "Kissing Camels" and "Balanced Rock." You will be astounded with the several different ecosystems through the park making it home to multiple plants and wildlife including red-tailed hawks, great horned owls, black bears, mountain lions, big-horned sheep, deer and more. Adventure awaits if you want to horseback ride, rock climb, take a Segway tour, or even a trolly, and the best part is there are no Fees to Visit! Millions of people visit Garden of the Gods annually, so if you want to avoid crowds, it's best to visit during the week or during off season. If you are interested in more photos, I also have a Blog about Eloping at Garden of the Gods. Check it out!
