The Garden Of The Gods is the perfect name for this place. It must be an amazing experience to walk around those rocks. I like the words on the plaque.

The garden of the Gods? Does this mean that all the Gods come to visit this place very frequently? Are they having meeting, discussion, tea time, etc over here.

The place for the purpose of Gods are always beautiful.

Melissa said...

Tes, what an absolutely beautiful place. Thank you for sharing it. Your pictures are lovely.

Diane AZ said...

George said...

Riet said...

The garden of the Gods, I have never heard about it but it is beautiful. You must have had a wonderful time

Cheryl said...

What great photos. I would love to visit this lovely garden. What a wonderful gift. Looks as if everyone had a great time there.

This is such a beautiful place...I've never been there but it, along with several of the places you've shown us, is on my list. I am doing a lot of international travel while I can still tolerate the long plane flights and will focus more on travel domestically in the coming years.

I love the new background. The patterns are inviting. Kaydie wants to know who the other two people are on this adventure with you and Doods. I agree with Ratty about the plaque. The place does look like heaven on earth. The lighting is perfect. I love action shot."picture of the woman jumping". Job well done Tes. Give yourself a pat on the back. You should take pictures of your beautiful house and show everybody. It looks like something out of a magazine. Zen,comfortable,and cozy. It's my dream to have a house like she and Doods have. Maybe someday.

G is for Glorious! That garden is Heavenly!
Reminds me of a place we hiked in Jordan, where there were hidden churches from ancient times hallowed out in the hills. Very cool.

I visited there many years ago when I was still a child and remember it still. So beautiful and fun. We were there for the night show with the kights and I am sure it has only become better.

Kateri said...

Oh, as soon as I saw the title of your blog, I said to myself "I've been there!" It was a long time ago, 1987 if I remember correctly. Thank you for allowing me to remember my visit to Garden of the Gods.

Hilda said...
