Location

Car: Necessary

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: I am a retired Experimental Test Pilot and Systems Engineer, and my wife Diana is retired after years of cadet service at the Air Force Academy Outdoor Recreation division.

Why the Owner Chose Colorado Springs:
Much cooler in the forest at our 7200ft elevation than downtown Colorado Springs, so enjoy inside and outside all day. Perhaps bring a sweater for evenings. Average temp. for June is 75|46. Average temp. for July is 80|50. Average temp. for Aug. is 77|50. Homes in this area do not use air conditioning.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have retired at this location because it provides convineant amenities, beautiful weather, and a unique opportunity to work and study outside on our deck most of the year, and to ski, fish, hike, and follow Air Force Acedmy sports.
