Garden of the Gods – July 23, 2018

We headed north towards Colorado Springs, and found an RV Park in Monument, Colorado.  It was adjacent to Highway 25 and you could hear the traffic at night.   It was quite different from the sounds of nature.

Weare glad we took the time to see it.  If you do decide to check it out in person, we suggest getting an early start.  It’s less crowded, and the heat of the early rising  sun is bearable.
