The hematite gives it the red hue.

June 22, 2021

I was so surprised to see this travel guide jumping out of my news notification. Honestly big brother is watching me and looking into what I read and say. I should add that I was pleasantly surprised and not mad at them for influencing what I should and shouldn’t be reading this time round. Yes I was sacredly overcome with joy to find this invitation to explore the Garden of the Gods especially after talking to revered poet

about the Garden with it’s outrageously gorgeous rock formations on her poetry blog.

As a result of two weeks of self-isolation due to the corona virus outbreak, I had time to revisit the thousands of photos I took on that trip. (Why I took some of them is beyond me, but that is a different story!)

If you not going to make it beyond your own borders for a long time, take a guided tour and read what the Everyday Tourist has to share about their trip to the Colorado Springs.


The Garden was neutral grounds for Native Americans for centuries before the arrival of Europeans. Rival tribes – Apache, Cheyenne, Comanche, Kiowa, Lakota, Pawnee, Shoshone and Ute were known to lay down their weapons when entering the garden. And, the Ute people, native to the area, often made their winter home near the formations.  

  1. Wow! That is beyond coincidence! I have been thinking about Garden of the gods for sometime – hence the poem. I guess their is a pull to spiritual places in these times.
    I note that the post you referenced was written in April 2020 on travel to Garden of the gods, some 6 years earlier. Everything is timing!
    How marvelous.👍👍 Thank you for sharing. 😊

  2. Thank you for reading. I’m so happy it resonates with you in such a unique way.
    I think so too, there is a deep longing on my side to return to the spaces that are sacred. Purifying and deeply Inspiring, not forgetting therapeutic.
    You are most welcome. I immediately thought about you and your haiku upon reading this blog.
    Wishing you a glorious day ahead still.
    And from me Goodnight.

  3. Thank you for sharing this
    Everything has timing

  4. That’s a humbling sight.
