Colorado | February 2015

February 18, 2015

We recently went to Colorado Springs to visit our best friends, the Keys, who moved there from NY in May 2014! We had such a great time and were very sad to leave them again. While there, we went to Garden of the gods (a beautiful "garden" with lots of big, red rocks). Most of the pictures below are of Garden of the gods, although there are a few of other things too! Enjoy!!

Quote "The garden of the gods. Given to the city of Colorado Springs in 1909 by the children of Charles Elliott Perkins, in fulfillment of his wish that it be kept forever open to the public"
