And now I am in Colorado. It's been nearly 10 years since I last saw the Rockies in person and they are ever stunning. I love how you can see them while walking around town, rising like guardians in the distance, peaks dusted with snow. Mountains are truly an awe-inspiring structure in nature.
After arriving, my friend Jessica and her mother picked me up from the airport and took me to see the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. Don't be deceived by the name as I was. It is not a traditional garden. The primary feature are the red rocks that reach up to the sky in a jagged and breathtaking array. People can even scale up the rock face--if they have the appropriate equipment and a permit, that is. I for one don't think I would be brave enough.
I'm hoping to get in some good hiking while I'm here. There's so much beauty, it would be almost a waste not to. The mountains are calling and I must go!
