Ghost town & Garden of the Gods

The Garden of the Gods is magnificent. Rocky outcrops that blow your mind, Coloured sandstone with incredible conglomerate chunks of quartz and other little rocks all through it. Colours and patterns.....
And as you have all worked out something we are likely to go nuts over.

A Rock formation Called the "Simease Twins".

The view from the park's visitor information centre. (Yes, that's Pikes Peak in the back ground) We had lunch at the cafe they have at this centre. Awesome view! This photo only captures about 1/5 of the panorama, with more rock out crops and more, middle distance sized, large mountains.

This formation is part of the big red outcrop in the right of the picture above. The call it the "Kissing Camels" For obvious reasons.

Inside the museum.

Went to the Ghost Town Wild West Museum.
