Steamboat

Your vacation planning community

I would like to interrupt this blog to announce my absolute pride and admiration for the people of Steamboat Springs. I’ve always been told “never toot your own horn.” So, all you Steamboat folks I’m tootin’ it for you.
    Following an incredible weekend of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge festivities and excitement, I am more in love with our community than ever before. Yep, I love you guys. Oh, let me count the ways...
    The people of Steamboat have a way to honor and rally for every cause and adventure. No matter what the event, fundraiser or activity, we come full force with incredible enthusiasm and support. It is unlike anywhere I have ever been.
    Standing next to my mom for Friday afternoon’s finish I was overcome with emotion. It was amazing! The energy was beyond anything I’ve experienced as a bystander. The community was that force that made the event so spectacular. From volunteers, to organizers the raw excitement was palpable. Athletes relished in the absolute roar of cheers as they made their way downtown. It’s no wonder race organizers distinguished Steamboat to be the most incredible reception of any stop on the tour.  
    Saturday’s departure was equally as exciting as I stood on Rabbit Ears Pass eager to see the pain of the climb on these world-class athletes’ faces. Joined by strangely dressed locals and even one wonder-woman, we cheered on the peloton with nothing less than the greatness that has come to be our norm.
    Enormous thanks to the organizers, businesses and all those who supported this event. We do life well. We are an incredible community and I am proud to be part of it. Cheers to you Steamboat.

Those are pictures of an event from the 1960's or the 1970's taken with a camera that would make older looking images as opposed to a modern day camera. Modern day camera photography is amazing and it is here to stay. The modern day cameras do not use film as an older camera may and they are also spectacular for wildlife and action sequences. Those pictures are from an event called The Hell of the Rockies starring Kevin Costner in American Flyers.

Caroline,

 

I couldn't agree more. It was truly exciting and as you stated the energy was incredible. Steamboat and the great State of Colorado earned enormous respect as it should have. Thanks for covering.
