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 https://suzetteb.home.blog/2021/06/19/garden-of-the-gods-a-haiku/

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.

History

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.
