It was nice to read and see the pictures of the past. From the top of the shrine was a great over look of the valley.

Nothing particularly jumps out on this scenic visit. Great view of the city below. If you are going to visit the Cheyenne Mtn Zoo anyway, then by all means visit this site.

Very impressive piece of architecture. Learning about Will Rogers through the photos on the wall very interesting. Fantastic views of Colorado Springs and surrounding area. Glad this was included in the zoo fee should not miss if you are visiting the zoo.
