Cheyenne, Wyoming to Colorado Springs, Colorado (July 20, 2012)

Our next stop is the U.S Air Force Academy's RV park. The short 156 mile journey took a bit over 3 hours with one rest stop. Traveling south on I-25 we began to drive through Denver.  We had turned the radio on to listen to the news and traffic, but instead we were hearing something else.

It seems there was a mass murder earlier that morning in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater. That put about 7 miles from this tragedy. How sad.

An hour later we were pulling into the RV park. The Air Force Academy is nestled into the hills of the eastern slopes of the Front Range and is located a few miles north of Colorado Springs, Colorado. We will be here for 11 days exploring and seeing the sights.
