Cathy poses at Royal Gorge384 viewsI think this was after Tim's fall -- he wasn't feeling like posing, in any case.

Air Force Academy Chapel:323 viewsWe were pretty happy how this picture turned out. The original (of which this is a scan) turned out beautifully, and we had it framed and is still hanging up in our house.

Air Force Academy Chapel:274 viewsA very cool building. I wonder if they'd allow it to be built today?

Royal Gorge Bridge266 viewsIt's the "Royal Gourge" bridge (see note above for misspelling info). We were too cheap to pay the $20 or so each to go inside the park, so we stood outside and shot a few pictures.

Royal Gorge Bridge158 viewsAfter taking one of these pictures, Tim took a terrible fall, which skinned up his hands and knee badly, and sent our digital camera flying. The camera survived (although with a big crunch in one corner), and Tim eventually survived, too. Fortunately it was one of the last days of our trip, as he was sore for some time afterward. Guess it doesn't pay to be cheap.

Cathy with Cog-wheel train track155 viewsThey have a cog-wheel train you can take up the mountain. Instead, we took our 1994 Saturn. It was generally a good car, but started to overheat driving up, and the brakes overheated on the way down. Fortunately neither problem caused us any trouble.
