A Walk Through Rock Ledge Ranch [Photo Tour]

I was fortunate enough to spend my lunch break enjoying a 74 degree day walking through Rock Ledge Ranch (formerly White House Ranch) right next to Garden of the Gods. I hadn’t been there since I was a wee tot so it was a nice, relaxing and nostalgic break from the daily grind.

The Rockledge Ranch Historic Site is an educational, non-profit living history farm and museum that depicts life in the Pikes Peak region in four time periods: American Indian area in 1775; 1860’s Galloway Homestead; 1880’s Chambers Home and Ranch; 1907 Edwardian Country Estate.

This time of year there isn’t much going on so it’s a very relaxing outing. The small planting areas were groomed and bare, the sprinklers were being tested for the first time this year and the only sound I heard were ducks, a rooster and the wind. I was able to eek a mile out of my stroll, ending up a the holy-cow-it’s-too-early-for-tourists entrance to Garden of the Gods. If you’re interested in Rock Ledge Ranch, visit their website for summer activities and go see it yourself. It’s located in Pleasant Valley at the end of 30th street just south of Garden of the Gods Park. Oh and if you like historic photography, check out this photo I found!
