Siamese Twins Rocks

If you've read this blog for long you know that Garden of the Gods is one of my favorite places to go, and I visit several times every year. Here are some photos of the Siamese Twins rock formation; it's not as well-known as some of the others because you have to hike a few hundred yards to it (it isn't visible from the roads). We start with the trail leading up to it.
And here's the formation itself in the classic Colorado sunshine.
You can look through it at Pikes Peak (this time the sunshine had disappeared).
There are other rock formations nearby.
Climbing without the right equipment is not allowed in this park.
This is an obvious entry for both the Orange Friday and Scenic Sunday memes.

  6. Hey Al, this is interesting, I have never seen it before and have been to Colorado. I like the shot of looking thru the "hole" between the twins, nice.
