Blizzard - Steamboat Springs, Colorado

    Newer Older

    Everyone I was supposed to ride with this day dropped out for one reason or another, so I was stuck solo for the day. Freezing cold blizzard conditions kept the tourists in the lodge with cocoas, and I felt like the mountain was all mine. The solitude was most auspicious... The main sound of the day was my board swooshing through the powder, my heavy breathing, and the occasional hoots of joy and maniacal laughter I just couldn't hold in.

      Ha nice - I was camping there in summer though :P. The rain was silver and didn't get anything wet. We cooked over the campfire and slept in queen-sized bunk beds made of logs. There was a little lake at the foot of the hill, surrounded by mountains. One day we went for a drive down the main drag of Steamboat Springs and almost ended up in Wyoming.

      Thanks springychick! It was a magical scene. They're far from miniature, but the blizzard made everything surreal.

      Kremmling always reminds me of my first raft trip, on the Colorado near State Bridge. Beautiful place... you were lucky to live there!
