Living in Steamboat always gives one the opportunity to see some fantastic events in nature, right out our front door. We live only about a mile from downtown and the warming weather from the past few days has brought a few different groups of animals right through our backyard. Most recent, and to the delight of My son Alden and daughter Neve, a mother and her cub wandered through our backyard this morning. Taking their time, it was a fun 10 minutes watching them while enjoying a great breakfast. Earlier in the week I was fortunate enough to also spot a few elk at the end of our driveway as I was heading to work. Included a few pictures below, hope you enjoy!
