It's not the Garden of the Gods like Colorado's but it is interesting. It looks like a moonscape. It does take a bit to get to the area, but it's worth it. You can take a bit more time and go to the beach just...More

Jeeps only, for this. Amazing country, almost as rough as my farm ground @ Home in Mt. Unique beauty and the sand beaches @ the end..... fabulous! A little too rough to swim when we were there.

This is a challenging place to get to, but the deeply spiritual essence found here is worth the trip. Try to see if the stones talk to you. The views are breathtaking.

It was surreal and beautiful in its own way. The best part was to continue the drive to the beach. We were the only ones on this beautiful beach. Ok, we weren't the only ones, we shared it with a few deer.

Fortunately, we had a guide to drive us to and inform us about this area. The road is rough, the wind can be fierce and the landscape provides an intriguing desolate canvas. Our guide, Bruce (as he did through-out the tour), gave us an informative...More

We had a great time there. It's a bit of a drive on unpaved roads (about 20 minutes or so) but that was part of the fun. Nothing bad at all. The result is great. You feel like you are on Mars. It's so different...More

How far are you required to hike once you arrive at the Garden of the Gods? It is my understanding that you can only drive part of the way? Is that true?
