Winterfat really stands out this time of year. The common name comes from the fact that it helps provide food for herbivores during winter. This small shrub can live to 130 years!

There are so many sights to see here. Sunsets, Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, ancient one-seed junipers, and lime stone rock from a long past ocean.

A great capture by Daniel Forster Photography.

I haven't been out for a good sunset in a bit. So here is one from last May over Pikes Peak - America's Mountain that I shot from Garden of the Gods Park

Garden of the Gods is one of many amazing parks in the City of Colorado Springs system. Our department (Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services ) has received national accreditation from the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).

The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services department consistently strives for excellence in our service to the community. Tonight, we were recognized for our work by achieving national accreditation from the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) and the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). Colorado Springs is one of just 186 agencies nationwide out of 23,000 eligible agencies to achieve this milestone. In Colorado, we are one of only 10 agencies accredited by CAPRA.

We are honored to join our esteemed peers in this achievement as we continue to provide world-class amenities and experiences for all residents and visitors.

Want to help spread some Holiday Cheer? I'm the Activities Director here at Namaste. Our residents need some extra love this Holiday season.
What a nice November day to be out and about. Looking at the south gateway rock formation from the west side of it. 11/17/2020
The planet's ecosystems face a serious threat from the effects of climate change and it's up to us to make a difference to reverse this fate. After I watched a Netflix documentary called "Kiss the Ground" I've recognized how I can use my voice to advocate for such positive change. The film highlights the simple solutions towards healing our planet and it provides such a positive voice to an existing issue. We all have the power to be part of the change, and I really think this film will impact our future in the greatest way possible. It's now available on Vimeo as well for anyone interested, let me know what you all think!

From my trip back in August. Everytime I visit, I’m still in awe! Definitely my FAVORITE place in Colorado🖤
If you have a photo of a Rocky Mountain bighorn, desert bighorn, Dall sheep, or Stone Sheep you have photographed please share with me. We'd love to send you one of these limited edition collector's coins. We know lots of people see wild sheep at Garden of the Gods. Through Higher Calling Wildlife we are raising awareness of wild sheep in North America. We give wildlife encounters to children who have a critical illness, traumatic loss or are in the foster system. We are mentoring some of the teens in the program to become wildlife conservationists and this is our first project. PM me (or email [email protected]) with the photo along with the state or province where it was taken and we will send you one of these limited coins from what we call our Sheep Scrapbook project. It'll mean a lot to us and the kids we work with and help #highercallingwildlife
