I headed off to Steamboat Springs for Labor Day weekend as it seemed a good bet for the weather, plus I was invited ;) The flying was quite nice, very gentle thermals which was a surprise to me, but apparently this is common as the valley is generally quite green, and this year had a particularly wet August. My battery ran out half way through the flight, but I think the scenery is still pretty nice, I flew for a couple hours, getting to 14k and had a nice landing at the hayfield LZ.
The next day, was questionable as to whether or not there might be helicopter traffic grounding freeflight, so I opted for a town tour on the folding bike I had packed. The river trail was quite fun.

Maddy gained some really good skills riding a rigid frame downhill, we stayed mostly on the Green, stince the 1.8" wide tyres on the 24"inch wheels without suspension has to be brutal on the wrists. Anyway she did great, 4 runs is a good showing considering the circumstances. What is more, she ended with a big excitablable smile.
