Red Rock Garden GodsGoing through some of my older stuff from Colorado and found this photo Red Rock photo from Garden of the Gods. It was taken during a early morning hike around the mountain trails. Garden of the Gods is a very beautiful place, the name alone makes it sound even more so. This place is well known for it mysterious balancing rocks which seem to defy gravity. I have a few good shot of those also so look forward to seeing them posted soon.
