Air Force Academy, Colorado

About a week ago we finished school! We celebrated by bringing Clayton and Spencer Bailey over and we went bowling and swimming. At the bowling alley I got a strike which I didn’t get very often. At the swimming pool there was a 3-meter high dive that I dove off. We went to the swimming pool a different time but without Clayton and Spencer. Next we went trail riding on horses. We weren’t supposed to trot but we did anyway.

We also went to the Royal Gorge. The Royal Gorge is a giant crack-shaped thing made by erosion. It was right next to the Rockies. It was about 1,500 feet from the water named the Arkansas River. We went on a tram, inclined train, and a super long bridge. Sam, Will, and I went on a roller coaster kind of thing. Later we saw a gunfight.

The next day we went to the Galvin’s new house. We went to a lake with them. We went canoeing too. We also saw their three horses. Then we went and had dinner at a Vietnamese restaurant. This morning we went shooting arrows. Our instructor’s name was Mr. Doug. He was very funny. On Wednesday we are going to the Galvin’s house again.
