Standing as sentinel over Colorado Springs is the Will Rogers Shrine of the Sun. Built in 1037, it sits 8,136 ft (2479.9 m) on the side of Cheyenne Mountain.
Colorado Springs icon, Garden of the Gods, from the Shrine of the Sun:
On our last visit to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, we bought a membership so we can visit pretty much anytime we want — and took advantage of that opportunity only a couple of weeks after our last visit. So there will be more zoo animal photos coming up. Are you sick of them yet?
In May, there’s a run to the Shrine, a four-mile round trip from the zoo up to the shrine and back. I’m considering running it this year, but that’ll depend on how the next couple of months of training go.
