The trip up to Pike's Peak was planned with our comfort in mind.The buses were very comfortable. The Air Force Academy is a place that we should al be proud of, both for the values that it inculcates in the students and for the range of experiences that are offered to the students. And Pike's Peak was a trip that we will not soon forget - the true majesty of the mountains is inspiring.

ITINERARY

All aboard for a pleasure-filled, unforgettable day! As the tour leaves Denver heading south on Interstate 25, see examples of 21st century business park architecture. Watch for the town of Castle Rock to the east pinpointed by the huge rock from which it gets its name. Then, enjoy the scenic drive through the United States Air Force Academy and the celebrated Cadet Chapel with impressive mountain views, well-manicured athletic fields, and fine architecture.

Next, drive through beautiful Colorado Springs, the state’s second-largest city. Tour the fantastic Garden of the Gods with its magnificent red sandstone rock formations, followed by lunch at the Trading Post (included). Tour climaxes with the ascent of Pikes Peak, located at 14,110 feet above sea level. Pass above the tree line, then up to the summit for gorgeous panoramic views of the mountains.
