Photo detail

A group of tubers heads to the Yampa River from the parking lot near Rotary Park at U.S. Highway 40 and Mount Werner Circle. The city of Steamboat Springs is asking tubers to enter the water downriver from Fetcher Park. The Yampa River Management Plan reserved the portion of the river upstream of Fetcher Park for other uses including fishing, paddling and wildlife viewing.
