Garden of the Gods


Garden of the Gods is touted as one the most enjoyable places to visit in America. These pictures aren’t altered, it really is this gorgeous. The pictures barely give a hint of the depth of color that shouts out God’s glory here.

Can you find the “kissing camels” in the next shot?

And as you veer around another direction the landscape changes once again. Being at the base of the mountains we can face towards the flat plains of Kansas. Towards home…which is really the best view there is.

  1. Re the “best view of all”… Home really is where the heart is, isn’t it?
    What a wonderful experience you and your family are having here! It’s a trip you all might never have taken if Art was stuck in his home office. That job, combined with your home schooling situation, has allowed you all to get fabulous views of this glorious country of ours; lets you know why it’s the greatest country in the world!God is indeed good, isn’t He?!!!
