The strangest thing happened Friday. A large flock of pink flamingos was seen flying through the snow over Steamboat. They landed at the Old Town Hot Springs. Upon further investigation, the Old Town Hot Springs has been "flocked" by Partners in Routt County. It is a fun fundraiser they do for National Mentoring Month. We hear that the folks at Ski Haus sent the flamingos. Everyone at the Old Town Hot Springs loves it! Submitted by: Shannon Lukens
