Why did Charles Lindbergh say he had never seen a “more spectacular and magnificent place" than the Garden of the Gods?

Colorado Springs

Garden of the Gods

Charles Lindbergh said he had never seen a “more spectacular and magnificent place.” He was talking about the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Garden is not a typical garden of flowers, but a garden of huge, beautiful red sandstone rocks, which formed to create shapes that befitted such names as: Kissing Camels; Siamese Twins; Steamboat Rock; the Cathedral Rock; the Gateway Rocks; and the Bear and the Seal. The best thing about the park is the admission is free.

The park of 1391 acres is open year round. Visitors can enjoy rock climbing, hiking, photography, mountain biking, road biking, and horseback trails. Some people even get married in the park.
