When living in Steamboat Springs, it is funny the things that I have started taking for granted. It doesn’t take me longer than 10 minutes to get anywhere in town, I recognize friendly faces wherever I go (grocery store, post office etc), the view from my office window is the beautiful ski mountain and ski lunches are a regular occurrence. I admit that I am a very lucky woman who lives in a very beautiful place.

Recently, it has been the natural magnificence of the Yampa Valley that has been catching my attention. Specifically, the sunrises and the sunsets that we see here are unlike any others I have seen. I consider myself lucky that at this time of year, I get to see both in the same day! Which do you prefer?
