Pikes Peak in the Distance
The Garden of the Gods is one of the strangest, most wonderful
rock formations in the Rocky Mountains. Its reputation has spread
'round the world, and thousands marvel at its massive grandeur every year.

the Garden assume as many varieties of eccentric sculpture. The stone
is of a beautiful red tint, weathered into many fantastic forms, which
are the wonder of nature lovers. The magnitude of these rock ruins
is the first thing to impress the dweller of the plains.
