To Steamboat Springs

Aloha Everyone,

The temperature was 38 degrees Fahrenheit when we woke up. City Market, approximately 11 miles from our camping ground, was our first stop. Surprisingly, we found most of what we had on our shopping list including our favorite bottled water, El Dorado.

Ever changing scenery kept me glued to Honu's windshield until we reached Steamboat Springs.

Steamboat attracts outdoor adventure seekers. During the winter, this includes skiing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. When there is no snow, hiking, biking and water sports enthusiasts come down to enjoy the great outdoors.

We stopped for lunch at Sunpies, where they serve Cajun-style food. We sat by the Yampa River's edge and listened to light Caribbean music under the shade of a large plum tree.

There were fly fishermen in the river and children tubing downstream. 

I was told that today is the last day of the  Yampa River Fine Art Stroll. Art on sale were by local artists.

Staying at KOA Steamboat. After 4 glorious days in the Arapaho. National Forest with 360 degrees views of lakes and the Rocky Mountains for $17 per night, it seems rather excessive to pay $51 per night for a small rather non-descriptive site. It is high season prices until Labor Day.

Aloha -- Cathi
