Our last full day in Colorado Springs was our day "set” day for sight seeing… even though every day in the Rockies is a day for sight seeing.
We started with a trip to the Air Force Academy, the size of the campus (10K acres) as well as the Chapel were quite amazing. The Chapel is actually multiple chapels and the Protestant chapel is the largest and first one we visited.
The Buddhist chapel was the smallest but also the newest addition
The Jewish Chapel was in the lower level with an 200 year old original torah hidden before WWI and found and donated to the AFA in 1989. The paintings on the wall are oil painted over gold leaf and are valued at $1million each.
We had more than a couple awesome views as we took the scenic route to Denver (normal drive time 1.5 hrs, our drive time 5.5 hours)
