ο κήπος των θεών

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Colorado Springs, and we have long intended to go back there with our children, to show them the Garden of the Gods and take the train up Pikes Peak. The train had to wait for another trip, but we had a nice walk through the Garden on a sunny day.

Me and Mini-Me

The nice thing about the Garden of the Gods is that it’s not a tourist trap. Sure, there are gift shops and kitsch if you want them, but if you don’t, you can just park your car and walk around, along with the locals who enjoy doing the same thing.

The sky begged for a polarizer to bring out the color. (I also discovered just how dirty my sensor is. 🙂 )

Did the kids like it? They complained a lot, but I think they were glad in the end. Besides, we had another, longer nature trek already planned.
