Way up there


We are now in the Rocky Mountains! Left the flat upper plains of Colorado and into the mountains at Colorado Springs. We stopped off at the US Air Force Academy and found it was there this time. Believe it or not we could not find it in 1976. I guess they just built it since then (Ha Ha). It was very impressive. We had rain for the first time in a long time on our trip up the mountain. It even was cool enough to use our heater for the first time since March. It got down to the upper 40s. Heading north today towards Rocky Mountain National Park. This is beautiful country. Enjoy the pics.
