  • I checked this Garden of the Gods on Google Maps, and although it was late, I couldn't stop my search here, and I was strongly attracted to it. Come here at 4 pm in November 2021. It is convenient to park here, the reception center is convenient for tourists to buy souvenirs and drinks, and the toilets are clean. Standing in the outdoor corridor of the reception center, you can enjoy the unobstructed view of the very magnificent tall red stone. Here you can hike or drive to different attractions and enjoy the unique charm of Red Rock from different angles. Because the time is limited, the sun will soon set, so I just took some pictures of the scenery. There are still many scenic spots that I don't have time to watch. If there is a chance, I will come here again to slowly enjoy this wonderful style!
  • Nice place to walk your dog or go for a casual walk. If you've seen the rocks from one angle, you've pretty much seen them from every angle, though. Walking an extra 2 miles isn't worth the view you see - they're pretty much the same view as what you see from 2 miles back.
