Cheyenne Canyon and Blue Skies

Here are some photos taken in a recent hike in Cheyenne Canyon, another city park in Colorado Springs.
As the name implies, it's in a canyon and the rocks tower overhead.
Even the huge pine trees look small.
It's been damaged by flash flooding a couple of times recently but they've repaired it each time.
I love having city parks like this within easy driving distance - I can feel as if I'm in the wilderness without leaving the city! And it's my entry for Our World Tuesday and Blue Monday.

  3. You Really do live in Paradise with all those beautiful " City" parks ... Not at all what people in other states think of when they hear that term.

  7. I would dearly love to visit Colorado Springs again. It's been many years and the rock formations were so beautiful. Your photographs really do them justice!

  8. I share your sentiments. Out here in the SF Bay Area there are many open spaces, wooded areas, parks to go to and you feel like you're farther away than you really are. I feel blessed living here.
