Description

This is the signature rock formation of Garden of the Gods. The Kissing Camels are one of the most photographed rock formations in the whole park. The Kissing Camels unsurprisingly look like two camels kissing. The formation can be seen from the highway and the parking lot.

On the Road: Best viewed from the parking lot.

Family Friendly: It is easy to view, and kids will have fun trying to spot the kissing camels.

Snowy, Icy - Thu Feb 1st, CW direction, up St Marys side, down Seven Bridges.  Traction and gaiters were used and much appreciated.... Lower trails were snowpacked and icy. Higher trails had deep snow (2-3', for long stretches on ridge).  From the St Marys Falls side, there was a decent trench all the way to the summit, still slow going.  Initial descent on Nelson's trl had some tracks to follow.  Tracks left Nelson's trl ~0.4 mi from dirt cul-de-sac. No tracks from lower Nelson's trl, 701 and most of 668. Broke trail in shin-knee deep, sugary, snow for 3.75 mi, then icy and snowpacked. 12 hr RT, for reference, took me 9 hr RT Jan 1st and 7 hr RT when dry.
