Air Force Academy

Part of the candidate weekend at Pinecrest was giving our family all day Saturday to basically do what we wanted. It gave us time to process the weekend, hear from God…or in our case, rip down to Colorado Springs and see the Air Force Academy and US OIympic Training Center.

So we roll up to the academy and see the chapel. It might just be the most awe inspiring center of worship on our continent.

The inside is incredible – so much so that the kids were even in silent awe as we walked in.

This view is from the pews if you looked to the side.

And here we are!!!

One more cool thing happened at AFA. The football team was practicing. So we sat right beside the field and watch the team go full contact scrimmage! That was awesome!

We took the “backroads” on the way home. Unfortunately we didn’t get to see the Training Center. It was pouring down rain and 70% of the tour is outside. Bummer for us but as we pulled into Parker, Amy snapped this pic.

  2. I like the comment about Darth Vader.
    I have seen the sight of the Chapel many times and it still takes my breathe away.
    It’s tripping an automatic worship switch in me!
    One visit there for church reminds me of this story. After chapel, we headed to the public facilities nearby to change into more comfortable clothes and shoes. Shoes being the key word. I had set my best Sunday pumps on a chair for just a minute while I changed into other shoes. Turned around …gone. Yes, stolen. Never more to be found.
