So this weekend we took a little road trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado. I’m so glad we went because it turned out to be a lot of fun. I was a little worried about having a jam packed weekend when last week and this week are so busy at work. I wondered if I shouldn’t be giving myself some down time- but really, this vacation was pretty relaxing and low key, so it was great.
We took a drive up to Walton Peak
And attended the vintage air show at the local airport
We ate at some great local restaurants and afterward we walked around their farmer’s market. We picked up some garlic pasta noodles and a bag of goji berry tea, all made locally.
Their Botanic Park is free to walk around in and we were very impressed with it.
We hiked up to Fish Creek Falls. The sun was in the wrong spot to get any decent pictures of the waterfall though.
Late Saturday night we drove up to Strawberry Hot Springs to soak in the warm water. I don’t have any pictures because it was dark already. You have to pay to get in to the hot springs but they’re open to midnight. It makes for some great stargazing while you’re soaking.
We took a ride on the alpine slide!!
We attended their hoe down and chili cookoff. We tasted a lot of chili and cornbread and then got to vote on our favorites.
Ashland on the ride home.
Little Nixon did pretty well despite the long day.
