Colorado Trip

We found ourselves in Colorado Springs once again recently. In addition to having a vibrant tech scene, tourist draw, home of the US Olympic Training Center, and abundant source of world-class natural beauty, Colorado Springs is also the site of many very large and influential Christian churches and organizations, such as Focus on the Family. Mix in a good dose of military from nearby Fort Carson and the NORAD headquarters nearby, and you've got a pretty interesting place to spend time.
