garden adventure

 The Garden of the Gods Park is a registered National Natural Landmark in Colorado Springs. It is also conveniently near all my family I visit when in the Springs. I spent a day in the park while visiting in the month of June. With sketchbook and traveling paintbox packed in a backpack I climbed a rock to paint my own adventure.
The amazing view with towering red rock formations and in the far distance, the front range of the Rocky Mountains.
As I painted, the sky was changing rapidly, and as often happens in the mountains, rain clouds moved in from the west. I painted enough before I had to scramble off my rock as the thunder and raindrops began.
