Traffic in downtown Steamboat Springs was ground to a halt July 6, 2009, as the Saddleback Ranch Cattle Drive sent a herd of longhorns from the west end of downtown to the rodeo arena near Howelsen Hill. Organizers of the popular downtown cattle drive during the Fourth of July holiday say they need an additional $3,000 to make insurance premiums in order to revive the event this year.
