Turks and Caicos: By Horseback

Another relaxing beach day lead to an exciting late-afternoon horseback ride through the clear, warm waters of the Blue Hills area of Providenciales.

Well Steamboat, you have been good to me.

It turned out to be natural springs, and hence, the two words were combined to create Steamboat Springs. I got to experience the hot… Continue reading Steamboat, Colorado Day 2: Hot Springs
