I, Zeb the Duck, am going to Steamboat Springs today. Steamboat Springs is a great mountain town and ski resort in northwest Colorado. Driving west on I-70, we go through the tunnel,
exit I-70 and head northwest. Our mountains are beautiful, but here we have mountains, rivers
and pasture land.
Steamboat Springs is on the west side of the Continental Divide. Up and over Rabbit Ears pass
and on to Steamboat Springs. Approaching town, we encountered Old Town Hot Springs.
We love the hot springs in our mountains. Warm water for swimming or lounging all year. Ducks and humans love water!
Sitting on the horse in front of the famous F.M. Light and Sons store, I appreciate the old west style buildings.
F. M. Light and Sons store was established in Steamboat Springs in 1905. They have been serving the town for more than 100 years and 5 generations. Steamboat Springs feels like a real western town with skiers and cowboys. I like it! Looking down the street, we see ski runs.
Of course there is no snow in the summer, but lots of biking, hiking and river activities.
The names of these stores are fun. Here is Moose Mountain Trading Company.
These flowers are wonderful, but the addition of this yellow duck makes them perfect.
Tomorrow we will see more of Steamboat Springs. This is a great town.
