The Garden of Gods Balancing Rock

Apr 11, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

A Sunrise from The Garden of Gods in Colorado Springs, CO. The rock formation seen in the foreground is the famous Balancing Rock. This rock is well known for it’s ability to defy gravity, hence the name Balancing Rock. I have another photo of a different rock which I’ll post soon.
