Photographer's Note

Balanced Rock has often been called the Eighth Wonder of the World. However that may be, it has certainly been one of the world's most photgraphed rocks (Well, I was not known this fact). Favorite photographs have included those of someone trying to push the rock over or of someone posed in front of the rock, sitting astride a burro or horse.

Balanced Rock did not become a part of the Garden of the Gods Park until the early 1930's. Before that it was private property. During the 1890's a youngster of fourteen named Curt Goerke began taking photographs of visitors to the rock for a quarter of a dollar each. Soon he was making so much money that his father Paul quit his job, learning photography, and bought Balanced Rock and nearby Mushroom Park for $400.

Note: I tried to remove those people form the picture, and couldn't get the way I wanted. If somebody have idea how to take off the people appreciate it.
