Garden of the Gods is certainly one of the sought after tourist destinations in the northwestern side of the Colorado Springs. You can easily combine your visit to the Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs and a slight detour will get you to the Garden of the Gods. This geological park has numerous unique red rock formations with hint of white and pink colors that you can normally see in the national parks in the southern Utah and the northern Arizona, but major difference here is those unique rock formations are surrounded by rush green forests. Some tall spire rock formations just look like Bryce Canyon. It is one of such places you definitely should not miss when you visit Colorado.
