My wife is flying into Denver this morning, and that's a 3 hour drive from Steamboat. Talk about the need to check with your airline before leaving home! She's arriving early...so I need to get up extra early in order to meet her.
...and this is why it's called Rabbit Ears Pass. See the stone formations here?
The ORIGINAL Hard Rock Cafe, in Empire, Colorado.
The view from near Buffalo Bill's grave. Note the flat-top mountains in the picture. The town in front is Golden, Colorado, and the white buildings (partially obscured by the tree branch) is the Coors brewery.

This morning's lineup...a gypsy-rock band (Papa Duke)...playing for the kids.
The rest of the band. The guy on the bongos is from Cuba, the rest sounded like they were from Russia or the Ukraine.
Another view of Hahn's Peak, taken from the lake itself. We rented a boat and went fishing/wildlife viewing for a couple hours.

Today we have lined up a couple of different things: sliding down a ski hill...and then riding back up it.
Now...the Alpine Slide. You ride these special 'carts' with a brake handle down a fiberglass channel.
One of Steamboat Springs...springs. Why'd you think it's called "Steamboat SPRINGS"? Actually...this one is called...I'm not joking...Steamboat Spring.
