Last April I took my first trip to Colorado, something that had been on my bucket list for quite some time. My cousin recently moved out to Denver so it was the perfect opportunity for me to see her and to see beautiful Colorado.
In the little bit of time I got to spend with her while she wasn’t working, we hit Garden of the Gods, a place that people kept telling me I HAD to visit. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing it was. It really wasn’t too far from Denver either!
This is a perfect trip for someone who’s broke (like me) because it’s free to access! And you know what? Who doesn’t like free?
It’s a strange location because it feels like you are in 2 places at once…..Arizona and Colorado. The red rocks sit in the foreground with the Rocky Mountains standing high in the background. You’ll find rock climbers, hikers, and tourists flocking here.
I highly recommend you check out Garden of the Gods when in Colorado! Take a look at the photos below to see what I mean.
