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.
