Garden of the Gods


There are some wonderful geologic features in Garden of the Gods, and it is very popular with locals and tourists.  But we decided to skip the touristy inner trails, and take the loop trail around the Garden.  Gives a very different perspective on the Garden, and some solitude while hiking.

    Hi John, Sure enjoy your blog. If you have time and like Mexican food, try “Jorge’s” in Old Colorado City. For Greek food try “Jake & Telly’s” also in the same place. For a gourmet pizza, try “Pizzeria Rustica” also in Old Colorado City. The Michael Garman Gallery is a very interesting place to visit.
    All of these places are on Colorado Blvd, close to Garden of the Gods.
    Have a great time. Eish we were there to show you around.
    Hugs to both of you.
    Ed & Marilyn
