Dave Truly smokes his bees every Sunday, a method to calm them down so he can sift through their hives. Truly and his wife have seven hives on their property near Stagecoach. Photo by Ben Ingersoll

Each one of Dave Truly's beehives can contain about 60,000 bees. Truly originally purchased two hives in Denver but since has purchased more and created swarms of his own, which help the garden outside his home near Stagecoach. Photo by Ben Ingersoll

Jordan Gollnick, right, rides up Mount Werner Circle on Sunday with Tommy Moore and Steph Seidl during the STARS Biking the Boat charity ride. "It was hard," she said, "but I pushed through it." She wasn't the only one to push through on a warm August morning. The event set attendance records with more than 200 riders. About half tackled the 55-mile ride, the day's longest, while about 70 more rode a 26-mile out-and-back version. The rest took on a 5-mile route in Steamboat Springs. Organizers were hoping to top the $25,000 the event pulled in for Steamboat Adaptive Recreational Sports. They surpassed that milestone easily. The counting wasn't done Sunday afternoon, but it was expected to approach $35,000. Photo by Joel Reichenberger

Beekeeping hobbyist Dave Truly spends a few hours every Sunday tending to his seven hives. Truly and his wife began beekeeping with just a few swarms about a year ago, but the bees have become their passion in a time when the numbers of beekeepers and bees are drastically down worldwide.
