Red Rock Canyon Open Space
$100.00 + $10. s/h
Please contact me if interested
Yesterday my plein air group painted at Red Rock Canyon Open Space. This area used to be a county dump and before that a quarry. A small percent (I think 1%) of Colorado's lottery money goes to buy land for parks. This park is a great result of that money! Red Rock Canyon is a southern continuation of the rock formation found in the Garden of the Gods.
I plan to use this as a study for a larger piece.
This is the tip of Pikes Peak, still very snow covered.
These almost vertical formations used to be horizontal (millions of years ago) and were pushed up from ground by earth quakes and geologic movement.
