Some of the Greatest “Great Outdoors”

There is a place called Garden of the Gods… and it lives up to the name. Garden of the God’s is a nationally famous natural and historic landmark where one can see a variety of incredibly beautiful rock formations. However, this is just one of the beautiful parks and natural wonders to be found in this city, located at the base of Colorado’s famous Pike’s Peak.
