Steamboat Springs

Now that I'm in Colorado, I often go on adventures on my own. I'll usually be driving around, keeping an eye out for interesting shops, coffee shops, and scenic areas. For years I've driving my this bridge (you can see it right off of the main road in Steamboat Springs, CO), and have always wanted to pull over and make my way down to that gorgeous walkway. So last week I decided I would finally go for it. Park the car, figure out the right path I needed to take to get down there, and hangout for a bit to just take everything in.

Oftentimes I get a little nervous going on adventures on my own. If you were to ask Scott, he would tell you I'm a big scaredy cat, but really, I just want to make sure I'm going to be safe. On this day that I finally made my way down to the bridge there was all kinds of people hanging out, and that definitely eased my nerves. From where I stood I could see dogs swimming in the river, people floating by on inner tubes, and more people just taking in the beauty (just like me).

If you're ever in Steamboat Springs, CO (a nice size ski town that is still going even during the summer months), I would suggest going to check out this bridge and amazing view. It's right off of the main street that goes through town, and there is parking across the street near the bank. I can only imagine how gorgeous this view would be during the winter as well!

Today I'm itching to go on another adventure, and think a nice walk around town is just what I need. I heard there is a froyo shop nearby and I could definitely go for some! Frozen yogurt shops aren't as in an abundance around here like they are at home, so when I hear of one close by I feel like it's necessary that I go check it out!

What are you up to today?
