Garden of the Gods

 If someone were to ask me what my favorite day in Denver was it would have to be my day walking in the Garden of the Gods.  Giant red rocks shadowed the ground below them and reached high into a crystal blue sky. To be able to share such beauty in the footsteps of millions that have walked before me was an overwhelming experience that I was lucky enough to share with my son. It is not surprising that the gods decided to plant a garden in this beautiful country. There was more God here on this Sunday than in any church and clearly my prayers were just a whisper in the wind among so many others. Faced with such enormous beauty standing still in time, my only thought was how I could press this time and put it in a bottle so that I could keep it with me forever.

Have you been somewhere that was so powerful in its beauty that it will forever be a part of you?

Many times my friend. Then again I am a dropped jawed idiot over anything new that I see. Everything fascinates me. However I will say the Swiss country side was one of the most impressive and beautiful sights I have ever seen. Also going through Dachau in Germany will mark my memories forever..

Really enjoyed your post. Beautiful photos! I have many forever memories - a fav is the drive into CapeTown, South Africa.

My grandfather wasn't a church-going man, but a spiritual man. He was a farmer and said he could feel God's presence all day.

I have been to Garden of the Gods and it was one of my most magical, mystical, favorite places on the planet. I have been other places as well whose beauty took my breath away or made me cry.

I've been there and it truly is magnificent. I felt the same way about Bryce Canyon.
