At dinner last night we were chatting with local who mentioned the wind advisory for tomorrow. He wasn’t kidding. Sustained 30 mph with 60 mph gusts. We stopped to get gas and I thought the rest of the trip was going in true Jeep style, no doors!
While at a Travel America we saw a school bus dropping off young kids, like 1-4 grade? What odd place for a field trip. Came to find out that the roads closed to the busses and they all just drove here. While leaving a group of high school kids were arriving. Yikes what are we about to drive into?
The hills, grass, and cows gave way to mountains, rocks and snow. At least it looks different!
Found that the route to Steamboat Springs would get us out of the most blustery day the fastest. This brought us to the high point of the day. Rabbit Ear Pass.
Of course the rest of the day was downhill from there. As we are entered the cute town is Steamboat Springs, it was asked of the human back seat passenger. Mac and Cheese or Pizza?
Pizza was the answer, off the the dog friendly How Ya Doin’ Pizza and Eatz. Good food go there!
The hotels in Furita were decently priced so that is the stop for the night. Went out for sliders and raspberry donut cheesecake.
Tune in tomorrow for more.
