Description

On verso:
No. 236. CATHEDRAL SPIRES, GARDEN OF THE GODS, COLORADO.
Near Colorado Springs, in El Paso County, Colorado, are two of the smaller ‘‘parks” of the state, Monument Park and the Garden of the Gods. Our picture shows the Cathedral Spires in the latter, giant remnants of rocks that in former times covered the entire region and by wind and rain, heat and frost have been worn down to their present size. The softer portions of the rock have been worn away or eroded, while the harder parts remain.
West of Colorado Springs is Pike’s Peak, the most famous mountain in the state, but not the highest, being one in a score that range between 14,000 and 14.500 feet in elevation. The highest is B1 met Peak, 14,408 feet, near the southern borderline. Pike’s Peak is only 14,147 feet high.
