I was recently involved with the search effort on Rabbit Ears Pass. Even though the outcome isn’t what we had hoped, I’d like to thank everyone who spent time searching for our friend. I was impressed not only with the professionalism, but also with the caring of all emergency responders. From Paul, the first officer on the scene when we found the truck, to Garrett, the last person to leave the recovery area when everything was done, to all the members of Routt County Search and Rescue, to Rob Ryg. They all helped friends and family members cope with an extremely difficult situation.
We in Steamboat are lucky, not only for the wonderful place we live, but also for the people that live here with us.
