Summer in Red Rock Canyon

It's time for a Scenic Weekends and Orange Friday blog post, so here are some photos from last August in Red Rock Canyon open space. My shadow, complete with hat and camera bag, is in this first photo, and that's Pikes Peak in the distance.
Now you can see some of the red and orange rocks for which the park is named. And my shadow again!
The park is a geologist's dream.
And in the distance are the main spires in Garden of the Gods, another place about which I've blogged many times.
I hope all my readers have a great weekend!
