Garden of the Gods

Rajkumar and Ananda Manikam (with daughter Saroja) drove our two swamis wo hours out of Denver to a famous rock formation called The Garden of the Gods. Spectacular red cliffs trust from the earth here. It's also a rock climbers haven and there were 12 or 15 climbers in full gear risking their lives on the sheer faces of stone.

This was once home to American Indian tribes who competed with mountain lions to carved a living out of the somewhat bleak and dry terrain.

The story is, if you believe it, that these formations were horizontal millions of years back and during a tektonic shift were uprighted, thus forming the unusual structures.

Archives are now available through 2001. Light colored days have no posts. 1998-2001 coming later.
