This iconic view of the Garden of the Gods park features the Gateway Rock formation framed by a juniper tree. This juniper tree has been weather over decades (probably centuries) by the snowy climate and has likely been struck by several times which has created its twisted appearance. This scene is simply sensational during sunrise.
