Quote from Marianne:  “See Steamboat through brand new eyes:  I invite you to time-travel with me as we walk the downtown streets, finding clues and artifacts of the past, then connecting them to the stories of today.  Steamboat Springs is rich with fascinating stories you may not have heard before. I’ve spent years leading outdoor tours in national parks and wild places in the West, and I’m excited to share my expertise with the public this winter, since most of the history work I have done here these past 18 years have been private programs.  Look for me in period costume, bring the whole family, or just treat yourself to something different in 2019.”
