13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Valley of the Gods

The entrance to the Garden of the Gods is a feast for the eyes. This gateway with Pike's Peak snowy ridges off in the distance along with the warmth of the desert sun marks the entrance to a playground for both mortals and the sleeping stone giants of this park. This mixture of the oranges, greens, blues and whites caught my eye, so I snapped the shot.
