Had the chance on my current trip visiting hotels in Colorado for a client event to drive through the Garden of the Gods en route from one hotel to the next. It was quite beautiful and the folks at the Trading Post as you enter the park were super nice and helpful. Tip: They give free samples of some amazing fudge...Elijah is very generous with the samples he cuts...just saying.
The Garden of the Gods is a free park for all and will forever remain that way. Charles Elliott Perkins built a home here and upon his death in 1907 his children gave the park to the City of Colorado Springs with the stipulation it be a free park.
The sun was pretty bright even at 5PM so my pics don't do it much justice...at least I have the memories. Here are a few pics from my drive.
