US Air Force Academy Tour

On the Road to Custer State Park. Stop-over in Colorado Springs, where we visited with Jim and Becky (Alfa Roadrunners) members.

On Saturday Jim and Becky shanghaied us and took us on a tour of the US Air Force Academy. What an awesome place. We found out anyone can come on base and tour the grounds. We were very fortunate Jim was our tour guide as he explained many features of the facility,

including knowing where to go for the best photo ops. As you can see from a distance the facility. We continued on into the visitor center. Which is named after Barry Goldwater (Arizona Senator, Governor) . We were lucky to get a shot of us in the front.

We continued to the parade grounds where the squadrons were having a competition. We grabbed a few shots of the area.

Both the shot above and below, shows a piece of the World Trade Tower Steel. It is located north of the chapel.

We continued on to the Air Force Academy Chapel. Which is known for it's beautiful inside and outside structure. The main chapel is located on the main floor, however there is a Catholic, Jewish and a Buddist chapel on the lower floor.

We continued on to the other parts of the chapel. Viewing the Catholic, Jewish and Buddhist Chapels.
