A Weekend in Steamboat Springs Colorado in Pictures

Last weekend we took our first drive into the Rocky Mountains.  We have admired them from afar since moving to Colorado a few weeks ago- driving through them though, was a different thing entirely.

We exited a tunnel that acts as the gateway to the Rockies, to find this:

 Initially, my husband Kris and I were unimpressed.  “I thought it would be more grand” I said. “Me too” answered Kris “I expected to at least have my breath paused.”

90 minutes down the road, we came across this:

The Rocky Mountains delivered.

We spent the days covered in snow, and the afternoons relaxing in the Natural Hot Springs:

Steamboat Springs, Colorado is a magical place; far better than we envisioned.
