Photo of the Week: 'A beautiful day' at the Garden

Last month, Woodland Park resident Bonnie Sumner took at trip to the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. It was one of the first warm days of the year. She wrote: “It was so warm and beautiful in Garden of the Gods today. We spotted this cute lizard taking advantage of the weather and basking in the sun.”
