Garden of the Gods Park is a registered National Natural Landmark in Colorado Springs and admission into the park and Visitor Center is free. It sits in the shadow of America's Mountain, Pikes Peak and it's only 2 1/2 hours away from Fort Collins.

This world-class Visitor & Nature Center and museum is the most visited attraction in the region with all new interactive exhibits. Learn how the amazing red rocks got there with the NEW Geo-Trekker theater experience, shown every 20 minutes.

My wife was in Colorado Springs last week for a conference and paid a visit to Garden of the Gods before she left. She took these amazing photos.
