Steamboat 2010 – Day 5
Yesterday we had a wonderful dinner at the Ore House
in Steamboat. Great food on an early bird menu. We monitored
the Tour de France in the afternoon and had empathy for Lance.
Today Nick, Mick, and Robin went fly fishing on the Yampa with
a guide. Some people went shopping and checked out the logistics
for tubing in the afternoon, and some of us who had not yet been
to the mythical red schoolhouse rode there (and Ingrid for a 2nd
time). After a great lunch at the Boat House restaurant 6 of us
rented inner-tubes and floated down the Yampa river for about
45 minutes. It was fun in spite of a few sprinkles and thunder
but no visible lightning. For dinner we went to a nice Italian restaurant
called Giovanni’s Ristorante.
Tomorrow we are driving to Clark with our bikes and starting our ride
from there. Mick and Nick are fishing again in the am, and several
of us are going to the Strawberry Park Hot Springs.
