Photographs in order of my day of peace before "the storm" of chasing the race begins tomorrow. Driving from Summit County to Routt County.

There also happens to be a rodeo, mountain bike race, a running event, and a 2-day art festival with 150 artists on display, all going on in Steamboat Springs at the same time.
It was a nice day of vacation in a town that is about to become very very busy with activity.
