Day 14: Cadet Chapel, indoor skydiving and wild buffalo chases

I’m currently on a 5,000 mile road trip through 15 states with Cecily. The following is an excerpt from today’s post on our blog,

This morning we decided to check out the Air Force Academy before leaving Colorado Springs. Every car gets searched before it goes through the gate, so we stopped and popped our trunk for the guard. One look in our trunk and all he said was “Road trip?”

“Yep,” we replied as he motioned us through. It could have been the two suitcases bulging with clothes that gave us away. Or all the bags of souvenirs. Or Cecily’s folded up bed stuffed on top. Not sure which one was the biggest hint of our activities.

We had heard that the Cadet Chapel was especially beautiful, and it did not disappoint. The outside was really interesting, with the triangles representing both the holy trinity and the shape of a plane or wing, as well as an A for Air Force.
