Some rocks formations in Garden of the Gods are the most popular ones with visitors and tourists. The Balanced Rock (subject for a later date) would be one of them. The Siamese Twins formation is another. Unlike the Balanced Rock, however, you cannot just drive up to this one. It requires a short uphill hike to get to it. It is worth every step of the journey!
The twins rise, almost in perfect unison, above the surrounding land and at the correct angle, you can see Pike’s Peak through the window! This is a merged image of two separate photos. Even with a wide angle lens, unless you have an extreme wide angle, it is nearly impossible to get this point of view and still get both of the towering twins into the image. If you are visiting Garden of the Gods, take this hike and watch the sunrise and illuminate both Pikes Peak and the twins. One of the best views in the city! Enjoy!
