Another one of the great places we visited while in Colorado last month was the Air Force Academy. It was a cold and windy day while we were there, but we didn't mind. For about a half hour while we were there it actually snowed. The kids (and Joel and I, too) were thrilled!
We took the trail from the visitor's center to the famous chapel. This is a beautiful building and we were awed by it. I love the colors seen in the Protestant chapel and the symbolism found in its shapes and structures.
A very kind public relations employee gave us a tour of the chapels that are open to the public. Its was fun to hear the information and stories he had to tell about each of the chapels.
On our walk back to the visitor center and our car, we encountered this fox. We were so surprised to see it this close up. When it noticed us, it just turned off the path and went around us. The kiddos are still talking it about it!
