Even though I'm an Army veteran I can see the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) from my back deck and I love the view. The Academy Chapel is picturesque against the backdrop of the Front Range and Pikes Peak. I frequently find myself on USAFA as a veteran and dependent of a military retiree so when I think of beautiful places to shoot pictures it's one of my favorite places to go.
There are so many great shots just in the publicly accessible area near the Academy Chapel, but if you explore you can find so much more. If you're lucky you may catch sight of elk, muledeer, bears, and even moose (OK, I've only seen moose once on USAFA, but it was amazing!).
