Larry: Steamboat Springs was way funky. We explored several shops and galleries. One gallery had about 20 paintings of this one woman in many cowboy motifs with various symbols like cows, boots, cornstalks, eggs, horses, dogs, etc.
We departed Steamboat Springs separately because we had to climb Rabbit Ears Pass at 15 miles per hour in a driving rain storm. I'm sure you can ...
