It is easy to enjoy Steamboat Springs when the weather is as perfect as it was over the weekend. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and today were all blue bird days and a little on the chilly side, which make it perfect for a good hike. On Sunday my boyfriend and I along with his very energetic Springer Spaniel, hiked up Emerald Mountain (or the Quarry as some people know it) for a good workout and to enjoy the spectacular day and weather. I haven’t done this hike for a few months, so the steep incline wore me out, but the view of Steamboat Springs and the Yampa Valley at the top made the hike well worth it.
