Garden of the Gods
There seem to be few areas in the United States outside of the Colorado Plateau where there are large quantities of vertical sandstone. The Garden of the Gods in Colorado is one of the more prominent areas, although each time I visit it, I am surprised at how small an area is included. It is also right at the edge of the city and so it sort-of reminds me of Papago Park in Phoenix. Of course, it is not desert, but mountains. I have not really had much of a desire to travel to exotic places outside of the Southwest because there is so much to see right here in my own backyard.
