US Air Force Academy, Colorado

On Interstate 25

Trip Day Two: June 13, 2000

Visitor Center

The visitor center contains quite a few exhibits, including a scale model of the academy showing where the cadets spend their time and what they may be doing at different times of day. Of course, there's the obligatory store there too.

Visitor Center Parking Lot

They were conducting summer camp when we visited, and there were a lot of visitors from all over the United States.

Another View of the Campus

Many years ago, the traveler on I-25 could easily see the famous Academy Chapel. Today it is surrounded by many other campus buildings, and it is much harder to see from the highway. Here, just right of the center of the picture, the top is visible above the surrounding buildings.
