Colorado Springs Photos

Finally some photos from our day in Colorado Springs. We drove up Pikes Peak in the morning. Traffic was very light with lots of pullouts, so we set our own pace and pulled over if anyone in a hurry came along. Had a great time on a beautiful drive. Spent a while at the top, shopping, eating lunch, having those famous Pikes Peak doughnuts.

Later we went to the US Air Force Academy. The base/campus is huge (and has amazing views). We got to the visitors’ center shortly before the center and the chapel were about to close, so we hustled over to the chapel to tour it while we could. It is well worth the trip. The interior of the chapel is highlighted by a huge pipe organ and stripes of stained glass that criss-cross the ceiling and run to the floor.
