Cathedral Spires
    Slicing into the Deep Blue Sky

Cathedral Spires is a cluster of blade-like stones that reach for the deep blue Colorado Sky.  From any direction they are spectacular.

Just Wow!

They are often referred to as the Temple of Montezuma.

I particularly love the old photos of the Garden of the Gods.  They remind us of both the changing and unchanging nature of, well, nature.  Chunks of these rocks break off, changing the formation forever. 

And note the lack of trees.  Remember, the trees that fill the Central Garden now were planted in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

Do you have a great story about the Garden. Maybe your first time here? Did you try to push over the Balanced Rock? Did your kids see a bear? What about selfies with a dinosaur? Or some nice photos?
