Throwback TuesdayPosted: October 4, 2011
I’m not sure I like that title. It sounds a bit like I’m throwing Tuesday back because I don’t like it or something. Ah well. Titles are not easy for me to come by so I’ll stick with it.
Today is a rather full day for me so I decided to mine the archives (hence the “throwback”) and see what I could come up with for a quick post. Naturally I ended up in the Colorado section because I have ignored so many of the photos from our last trip out there that I can always come up with something that hasn’t yet appeared on Ye Olde Blogge.
Garden of the Gods is a public park located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. There are some incredible rock formations in Garden of the Gods. It is also a very touristy place so you are likely to find quite a few people milling around. I was surprised to find I have some photos with little or no people in them as it was quite busy the afternoon we visited the park.
Balanced Rock is a popular attraction in the park. It’s near one of the entrances, which might account for some of the popularity. If you look closely, you’ll see a few people in the above photo. It does help to give you some idea of scale.
I am told (and have seen photos that corroborate the tales) you can see Pike’s Peak from the park. We were unable to see it on either of the days we visited Garden of the Gods. It reminds me of our visit to Yosemite. It was a quick overnight trip (less than 24 hours) and in that time we were unable to see Half Dome because it was shrouded in clouds, fog, or snow squalls.
It has turned into a gorgeous day here in the Bogs today. The clouds gradually moved east and we now have a big, beautiful, autumn-blue sky with lots of sunshine. It is breezy and cool. I’ve been rushing through my work this afternoon so I can get out there and play. Hopefully by the time this post goes out, I will be out. Outdoors, that is.
Thank you for visiting me here in the Bogs today. Hopefully I’ll have some new photos for you tomorrow. This day is a show-off kind of day, so pretty that it begs to have its picture taken. Never let it be said that I didn’t heed the pleas of a pretty day. 🙂
P.S. My apologies for not keeping up lately. I’ve fallen behind in responding to comments on my blog, as well as reading and commenting on your blogs. I hope to catch up soon.
