I never cease to amaze me. The things that I think are going to be boring, really aren’t. Like the Fight Museum in Seattle. Or the Custer Battlefield. After Pike’s Peak, we went to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. It was beautiful. It sits on 18,000 acres at the base of the mountains and was established in 1954.
One of the coolest things I learned was that they still teach falconry there. I guess you could call them the originals drones!
The Chapel is what I really came ot see. Everyone said it was stunning inside. Unfortunately, they were having a wedding so we weren’t allowed on the top floor. It is a most unusual looking building with 17 spires.
We were allowed to see the downstairs portion where they have a Catholic, Jewish and Buddhist worship center. This picture is of the floor by the Synagogue which is composed of real stones from Jerusalem.
This next picture is of the a Holocaust Torah
Here’s a shot of some new cadets, 2 days off the boat learning to march.
This is picture of the 911 Memorial. It is a piece of the girder from one of the towers. It was very moving.
This for all of you who know jets. Can you name what kind these are what they were used for?
Yeah, the first plane is an F-15 and the second is an FA-18 Hornet. Nice post honey
