Western activities abound in Steamboat Springs
Steamboat Springs adventures are filled with a slew of good times that are free.
So far, everything is just like the morning of my first hotair balloon ride a few years ago. Only this time I'm on the inside - hanging out with the crew that will launch two balloons to drift alongside 40 others in the 29th Annual Hot Air Balloon Rodeo in Steamboat.
Take in the lush tranquility of Steamboat’s native flowers and plants over a pond-side picnic or a stroll at the botanic gardens.
Most animals humans included live by a code of self-preservation that serves us well. We avoid oncoming freight trains and hardly regret saving our skins. So why would anyone leap from a perfectly functioning plane?
