Best Rock That Looks Like George Washington
Twenty miles south of Denver, the jumble of red rocks known as the Fountain Formation includes an outcropping that looks remarkably like George Washington's profile. The resemblance is so startling that the area in which the rock stands was known as Old Washington Park for years, until confusion with Denver's Washington Park inspired a new name: Roxborough Park. The best time to catch a glimpse of George, who stands to the west of Fountain Valley Trail, is during one of Roxborough's moonlight hikes.
