August 23

We have had another lovely day here. We started out by going to church with a blogging friend. The service was wonderful and it was so nice to meet Renee and family in person.
We then went to the United States Air Force Academy and were able to walk around their beautiful grounds.
This is their chapel. We were able to go inside also. Each section you see on the outside, has a strip of stained glass running on either side when you go inside. It is truly beautiful.

After we finished at the Air Force Academy, we went to the US Olympic training Center. This statue is at the front of the building. It was fun walking around there, seeing the flags of all the countries along with the torches for three recent Olympics.
