A Weekend in Steamboat Springs

Lisa and I had tentatively planned on hiking Mt. Sneffels in the southwest corner of the state during this weekend, but since so much snow had fallen in the mountains (and our Yale and Princeton hikes two weeks before were quite a struggle because of it) we decided that we'd go with Plan B instead. I'd never been to Steamboat, and since it was the mud season (i.e. the season between hiking and skiing), we figured it'd be a nice time to go. The weather was a little less than cooperative, staying cold, foggy, and snowy most of the weekend, but we still had a great time. We relaxed in the condo, explored the region, and went hiking in the Mount Zirkel Wilderness.
