Garden of the Gods

One of the very best things about moving somewhere new is getting to check out all the cool places and sites it has to offer. CO had nothing short of these little adventures for us and we have created a whole list of things to do as each weekend arrives.

The pics don't show it but we went on a beautiful Saturday and it was sooooo crowded. If we go again I think we will opt for a weekday.

The girls thought it was totally lame at first until we came to an area where they could actually get up closer to the rocks. Then it opened up a whole new world to them of climbing, exploring, sliding, and playing.

What makes this place so mesmerizing is that it seems that the rocks have literally just dropped out of the sky as they don't really fit in with the mountain landscape of CO. I kept feeling like we were in Sedona, AZ or Zion National Park in Utah.

I so grateful for a good man who loves taking his girls on adventures. He is such an explorer at heart. We are both hoping to engrain it into our daughters.

Yep, this is where you will find me most happy.

Amidst my juggling 3 cameras (phone, point and shoot, and DSLR) I managed to take some video. Enjoy.

I love your adventurous spirit and know that your girls will inherit it! You are the best to get out and see and do new things and I'm re-inspired by you to visit more AZ sites this winter.
