“Hold Fast to Dreams”.In 1953 I came from Ga to teach riding at Perry Mansfireld Camp in Steamboat Springs Colorado. As I was leaving the camp heading home to Georgia sitting in the back of my friend’s car I looked out the back window at the beautiful Yampa Valley and said to myself “This is where I want to spend the rest of my lfe” I returned to Ga, fell in love, married 6 yrs later, raised 3 sons, always holding on to my dream. So in 1994 my husband

and I foound a house of our dreams ,and moved to Steamboat Springs! – 41 years later!! This is the place I am meant to be- – mountains, blue sky, clean air, beauty and peace surround me here. Always “hold fast to your dreams!”
