Garden of the Gods

Red rock formations created during a geological upheaval along a natural fault line millions of years ago. The soft sunlight of late afternoon (the pictures in the middle) enhances the beauty of the formations. Too bad we forgot to take a picture (with Pikes Peak in the background) from the Visitor Center balcony :(
