Seeing "The Rocks" from a Whole New Perspective

One weekend in September an arts and crafts festival is held at the Rockledge Ranch near the Garden of the Gods. Artists and crafters from around the country converge for a three day sell-a-thon of fabulous goods for everyone, especially the early holiday shoppers. It is held on the grounds of the ranch with large tents and various activities that are related to this historic site. The blacksmith has demonstrations throughout the day. And the most popular vendor is the one selling kettle corn.

There were activites for the kids like face painting and lots of fair food to keep the masses nourished throughout the marathon shopping day.

And with the backdrop of the red rock outcroppings from the park, it was a beautiful day to be a tourist in my own backyard.
Follow your dreams!
