Got back from Denver, Colorado on Saturday night and just finished editing all the photos. It was a beautiful place with wonderful weather. The first night we were greeted with a rainbow looking from the backyard of Kacy and Kevin's house. A sign of gorgeous, God made beauty.
With the sun down and cooler temperatures, a fire was lit and we toasted marshmellows for Smores. I'd never had one before and I really enjoyed it.
I've been through the Smoky Mountains quiet a few times but these mountains are so different. The overwhelming feeling of being so small in comparison. I learned that "America the Beautiful" was inspired and written from these views. I can see why.
The above view was taken from Pike's Peak. It was so cold and windy up there. Unfortunately, I found out I get altitude sickness (even though I wore a patch). I snapped a couple of pictures on the way back to the Cog train from the summit house.
The picture below was taken on the way down from the train station through the Garden of the Gods. We stopped at several places to enjoy the views and play up on the rocks.
What amazed me so much was the flowers that were blooming among the rocks. The colors were so vibrant!
Will post more photos this Saturday. See you then!
