Colorado Rocks!

Colorado Springs, CO- High caliber gymnastics, hiking, sightseeing, and team dinners. Here's the recap of our recent trip out west:

We took a 4 hour flight from Philadelphia to Denver. As soon as we got off the plane, we picked up our rental car and drove straight to the Garden of the Gods (pictured above and below). This was the perfect place to get our bodies moving after the long morning of travel.

The Garden of the Gods was once an inland sea, a field of sand dunes, home to the dinosaurs to roam, and a campsite for Native Americans. People have been visiting this sight for thousands of years, and last week it was our turn. We went on an invigorating hike and drive throughout the park to see as much as we could see with the time we had. The sight of rock formations and mountains did not disappoint.

The main focus of the weekend was geared towards the USAG Collegiate Nationals at the Air Force Academy. This campus impressed all of us because of the unique structures, how spacious it is, and how the campus is surrounded by mountains. The clear hot spot was the chapel, pictured below.
