15 Pictures From Garden Of the Gods That Will Make You Fall In Love - Aimless Travels - World Travel Tips and Guide. These pictures of Garden Of the Gods will be sure to make your mouth drop. Garden Of the Gods is located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which is about an hour south from the Denver airport. The beautiful formations you’d see at the park are ancient sedimentary rocks made of deep-red, pink, and white sandstones, conglomerates, and limestone that were deposited horizontally, but are now tilted vertically due to uplifting.

The rocks were once an ancient sea, eroded remains of an old mountain range, sandy beaches, and great sand dune fields. How did Garden Of the Gods get it’s name? Garden Of the Gods was actually named after a beer garden in 1859, after Beach and Rufus Cable stumbled across the rock formations.

Salt Lake City, Utah may just be the perfect destination for you, that you may have never thought about. Back during August of 2014, David and a few of his friends decided to take a road trip across the country after they graduated college. We had just met a couple months before he left for his trip.
