Garden of the Gods

On day # 4 here in Colorado Springs we took a jeep tour of the Garden of the Gods.  This area is known for its red rocks and the upright spires.  At one time the rocks you see below, made up the floor of the area, but shifting plates of the earth stood them on their sides.  We also visited Balanced Rock and one that they call Steamship Rock, as it sits on the ground and has a v-shaped front, much like a ship.
