Garden of the Gods

By Linda Tancs

The Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado is a registered National Natural Landmark.  The natural landmark program recognizes outstanding examples of biological and geological resources across the country.   Home of the Bighorn sheep, the Garden of the Gods is renowned for its blazing red sandstone rock formations piercing the sky.   Rock climbers get great views of snow-capped Pikes Peak.  For the less daring, take a free 30-minute, naturalist-led walk daily at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m.
