GARDEN OF THE GODS, May 24

Today was rainy but the sun broke through and the dark heavy clouds were replaced by billows of white fluff so the kids and I took a chance and drove out to the Garden of the Gods.

The neatest thing next to the actual rock formations themselves is the fact that this park is in the middle of Colorado Springs, practically within the city!

We were there for just under 2 hours, which was about as long as the sunshine lasted.  We made it back to the parking lot just as the rain drops were starting to increase in size and frequency.  Thats how it is in Colorado, rain one minute, sunny the next, and then rain again... and sometimes even a little snow or hail!   I love it though.

Just more pine trees. I have hundreds of shots of trees and plants, they all pretty much look the same but I can't help myself.  They're all just sooooo beautiful!

(They picked one of mine I took the other day of some pink clouds that looked to me like flying geese)

I have been to Garden of the Gods many times and have tons of pictures.  The first time was when I came out in 1987 with my sister-in-law.  The second time was when I came out on vacation in 2000.  When we moved to Palmer Lake in April of 2002, we went many times.  It is such a beautiful place.  Beautiful does not even begin to describe it.  God, how I miss living there!!!!!
