Cathedral Valley, Garden of the Gods Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado
Garden of the Gods is a public park located in Colorado Springs. The outstanding geologic features of the park are the ancient sedimentary beds of red and white sandstones, conglomerates and limestone that were deposited horizontally, but have now been tilted vertically and faulted by the immense mountain building forces caused by the uplift of the Pikes Peak massif. The name Colorado is said to come from the color of the sandstone.
