It's rainbow weekend in Steamboat and that means the 25th annual balloon rodeo. Balloonist from all over the country come to Steamboat for a mass launch. Our valley is blessed with currents that easily allow the balloons to navigate around and generally end up back where they launched, something it seems that is very appealing if you are flying a balloon.
The only downside is that you need to get up at 6 am. On a Saturday! But I'm sure you'll agree, it was worth it.
