Although riding was the main attraction, we had fun doing other things. We got to raft down the Colorado river. That was pretty cool. The rapids were pretty weak, I don’t think anything got to even a 3, but it was still beautiful. And cold. Apparently water that was snow the day before feels like ice water…duh. I think this is a good time to mention that it was pretty cold on our honeymoon. June in Colorado is definitely not summer, and after the winter we had I was not happy to see snow. Also, 60 & 70s feels way colder in the semi-desert, high altitude climate of the Rockies than it does in the Ohio River Valley. On the plus side I got to wear all of my cute jean jackets.
Friday evening found us in Steamboat Springs, a gorgeous little ski town that hosts a weekly rodeo. We ate, we drank and we watched crazy cowboys get bucked off.
