Garden Of The Gods

  

Yesterday we took a Jeep tour of the mountains around Colorado Springs that included a visit to the Garden of the Gods — a collection of unusual rock formations atop on of the mountains.  When the Rockies were created, the shifting tectonic plates thrust rock here and there, and the Garden of the Gods is one of the more beautiful results of that process.

I never get tired of looking at western rock formations.  In central Ohio, we have nothing like it.  The closest parallel was a large rock that was supposed to resemble a long-ago Native American chief called Leatherlips.  The Garden of the Gods, obviously, is in an entirely different category.
