Last weekend, our oldest daughter was celebrating her two-year anniversary with her boyfriend in Steamboat Springs and we needed to get some Christmas photos for the year so we decided to join them up there. They had gone up before we did and stayed in a B&B. We stayed at a La Quinta about five minutes from them.
The drive to Steamboat was about four hours. There was a bit of snow as we approached the Eisenhower Tunnel.
Down the other side of the tunnel is steep and curvy. I’ve been down this road many times but each time, I’m always so nervous.
When we got closer to Steamboat, it snowed.
A few minutes before reaching Steamboat, the snow stopped and disappeared.

We didn’t have time to do too many things. Our one full day there, we had breakfast with our daughter and her boyfriend, and took photos. Then, they went their way, and we went ours. Husband, our youngest daughter, and I went to a hot springs which husband and I loved, but daughter didn’t so much. The sulfur was too strong for her. The sulfur started to burn my eyes eventually so we left. We had lunch and then went to watch Eternals at a really small theater (it’s really small compared to the AMC near our home, but not nearly as small as the one in Craig when I went with our daughters some years ago). Daughter and I liked Eternals. Husband thought it was too long.
It was a nice little getaway to a small ski town. Everyone was friendly and the view was beautiful and peaceful.
