    Here's a few shots taken last week in a local state park - Roxborough State Park. The red sandstone outcrops depict the Fountain Formation, common in the Colorado Front Range along the foothills of the Rockies.

    Fine pictures and welcome to the Cafe.

    Is Garden of the Gods near Colorado Springs part of the Fountain Formation? Looks a lot like the ones here.

    Thanks, John. Indeed, these are the same formation as the Garden of the Gods.

    That reminds me of one of the scenes in the classic 80's movie Red Dawn. The scene where the Wolverines are ambushed by the Russian attack copters.

    I'm not familiar with Red Dawn, Joshua. Might have to check it out.

    Thanks, Gale.

    Thank you, Terri. I'm looking forward to getting out and shooting more. If only weather would start acting like it's Spring!
