This flat lander is reminded of the importance of abundant oxygen in the atmosphere. As we do some hiking through Garden of the Gods, I run out of stamina quickly, but it is so beautiful. The once-flat sedimentary layers (sandstone and shale) were uplifted by the igneous intrusion that formed Pike’s Peak and, after exposure to the elements over millions of years, have eroded into these lovely formations.
