Garden of the gods

Only minutes from our hotel, in the shadow of Pike’s Peak – is an amazing park full of towering rock formations where you can hike and explore for hours: It is a majestic sight, rightly named "Garden of the gods." The red sandstone is how Colorado got its name! We'd been looking forward to taking the girls here....

But, after recovering from being sick a few days, we wanted to get the girls out of the stuffy hotel room for some fresh air and outdoor fun. Our plan backfired - as the girls were all cranky for the majority of the morning. Here is one picture that managed to have happy hearts. Later we found out that climbing the dangerous sandstone was illegal. So daring, aren't we?
