We are three rubber ducks living near Denver, Colorado. We live in separate houses with three generations of the same family. Zebulon (Zeb) Duck was named after Zebulon Pike, the explorer and lives with a retired teacher. Soapy Smith Duck is a rascal duck and named after Jefferson Randolph (Soapy) Smith II, an explorer, scoundrel and philanthropist. Soapy lives with his self employed mom and dad. Then there is JB Duck. He lives with recent college graduates. We have a cousin, Eider Duck that lives near Fairbanks, Alaska. Eider is named for a large sea duck that lives and breeds in the Arctic. We are the four Colorado Traveling Ducks.
We, ducks and humans, love to travel and love our home states of Colorado and Alaska. Our humans have traveled to many foreign countries and all 50 states. Zeb’s mom has visited more than 90 countries and still eager for more. All of our humans have visited many countries and several states. Much of the traveling was before we ducks joined the family.
We want to share our adventures and photographs with you. Our purpose is to inspire you to visit and enjoy places, near and far. Denver, like most cities, has many events and places that are fun and fascinating. While traveling far is fun, we love and want to encourage you, to be a tourist in your hometown.
We ducks and humans became a family and started this blog during the summer of 2013. Please tell us what you like and give us suggestions to make this blog more interesting, informative and entertaining. We have fun traveling near and far and enjoy sharing our adventures and pictures with you. We want you to have fun also! Visit www.coloradotravelingducks.com/2013/08/30/colorado-ducks-become-our-family/ to see how we all came to be a family in Frasier, Colorado.
We love to hear from you!
Love your ducky family, I will have to keep you in mind whenever I find their relatives spread across the globe!

Thanks for reading and commenting. Justin is great. We loved reading about his adventures also.
Hi ducks! This looks like a fun blog, I look forward to reading about your travels…..
Thanks and Welcome to the Colorado Traveling Ducks. We have been reading yours also and enjoy posts about about your life on the boat.
We’ve just nominated you for the Liebster Award. You can accept or not, you won’t hurt our feelings if you don’t. 🙂
Thanks for the nomination, but I really do not do the awards. I do enjoy blogging and reading your posts, so thanks, but I will not be participating. Feel free to nominate someone else if you wish.
Wonderful posts! I travel vicariously at every opportunity and I am thoroughly enjoying your travels! Thank you!
Thank you. I really appreciate the kind and encouraging words. I also am enjoying your blog. Thank you
You ducks sure have travelled a lot! Very impressive blog.
Thank you. We love to see and do new things and, of course, love to travel. Thanks for reading and commenting.
Nice to meet the travelling ducks! May 2017 bring many flights of fancy your way. Thanks for the follow 🙂
Thanks for reading and commenting. We are eager to read more from you also. We ducks will be traveling around Colorado and are hoping to explore more of this big world also.
Quacky travels 🙂
Thanks. Hoping to have many more.
Hey Zeb, Roscoe Monty and Henry here, mom just posted a blog post about the library sale and mentioned you in it. Hope she was kind 🐶🐾📕. We can never tell with humans, they’re so strange!
Hi fellow nonhumans. We read your library post. Mom is smiling so all is wonderful. I love reading about the adventures of Roscoe and Monty. And the misadventures of Henry. Keep writing.
Such a wonderful idea for a blog! I’m a firm believer that traveling is a crucial part of lifelong learning, and this is such a creative way of sharing that knowledge. I also firmly agree with “being a tourist in your hometown”-as someone from a tiny Ohio town, I’m forever surprised at the beauty and cool things around me that I never even noticed as a kiddo.
Thanks for reading and commenting. We love being a tourist in our home town and our state. Glad you also find new and interesting things nearby and everywhere. Happy traveling to you also.
Great idea for a blog. Being a Coloradan and in love with the beauty of the state, I especially appreciate this.
Travel is a wonderful way to gain perspective on life, for human and duck alike. Every time I travel I see something new and wonderful. I’ve seen much, but never enough, of Colorado and would be content to just see as much of the state as possible. It is a land of endless variety. Have the ducks ever been to the Sand Dunes?
The ducks have not been to the sand dunes. Humans were before starting the blog. Thanks for reminding me of another great Colorado destination. Great Sand Dunes National Park is now on our list. Thanks for reading and commenting. Nice to know you are also exploring and enjoying the wonders of Colorado.
That would definitely be a great duck destination. It’s always astounded me that such a distinct feature exists in such a small area.
I absolutely LOVE your quacky blog!! And the trip to St. Louis was great (I live here now — NOT my hometown, though). I followed so I can keep track of y’all!
Thanks. We enjoyed St Louis. But as always, needed more time. How lucky to live there. Thanks for following us.
SO much fun!! Nice to meet your “quacky” family and looking forward to reading many more of your adventures!!!
Thanks for the kind words. We do have fun and enjoy seeing our world. Thanks for following us.
Love this blog! I’m excited to dive deeper. I’m a fellow Colorado-based adventurer; cheers to having plenty of fun! 🙂
Thanks for reading and commenting. I’ll be reading your blog also. Hopefuly getting some ideas from you for more Colorado adventures.
Still following this blog. Is Laclede in Kansas or Missouri? Luck Duck Sheila always was confused by the fact that Kansas City is in Missouri and not in Kansas. I remember MO being further east and having much more historical sites.
Oh my. Thank you so much. You are correct. Laclede is in Missouri. My embarrassing mistake. I will post a correction in comments on that post. And Kansas City is on the river, part of Kansas City in Missouri and part in Kansas. Thank you Luck Duck Sheila. I love your blog also.
I was your tour guide at Oak Alley today. I love this blog!! I’m so glad I got to meet y’all today and give you and your ducks a tour of the big house!! I hope the rest of your visit was wonderful!!
We loved our tour of Oak Alley Plantation. You were great. Informative, nice and very patient. Such a beautiful place. There will be a blog post about the plantation when we finish the month road trip to Fairbanks and back. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon.
Hi! You’ve got such an interesting blog name 🙂 I’ve just joined your blog and looking forward to reading your posts. I’m from the other side of the globe. I’ve been to America twice but not yet the Colorado side. 🙂 — amor
Thanks and welcome. I enjoyed some of your posts from the Austrian alps. Beautful and fascinating. Hope you visit Colorado in the future. I look forward to more post from you.
A great family of ducks! WE love to travel, so will following you along to see what your up to. We are up to whatever we can do as often as we can, and just enjoying life in between.
Thanks. We ducks love traveling also. We have enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to reading about future trips. Keep writing and we will keep reading.
