Garden of the Gods

On our way through Colorado Springs, we decided to stop by this natural landmark. And with it being accessible by an easy drive, we couldn't resist exploring!

I was surprised to learn that people are actually encouraged to climb the rocks (if you have a permit, that is). There are hiking trails that lead throughout the boulders and outcroppings, all very user-friendly and do-able. 

We definitely didn't climb anything. We would never.
