Steamboat Springs photographers met for Scott Kelby’s fifth annual “World Wide Photo Walk” on Saturday. Participants from thousands of locations documented their town on this day, as well, and the best of the best will be featured in a book. The group was led by local resident Roger Good, and all had a great time despite the cold temperatures, heavy clouds and rain. We met up at Steamboat Smokehouse for dinner and shared our slideshows on the big screen. Submitted by: Rebecca Musso
