Steamboat Springs City Council has approved a new campground in West Steamboat. It’s a 14-site RV campground on a 2-acre stretch of land between Riverside Drive and Whitehaven Court in West Steamboat. There will be five semi-permanent park-model RVs, which is like a tiny home on wheels. They can be rented on a nightly basis. There will be a fence and an on-site manager. Council also voted to approve Sunlight Crossing, which is an affordable housing project.
A dog is looking for its owner. A mini Australian shepherd was found up on Rabbit Ears Pass Saturday, near the turnoff for Dumont Lake. A passerby noticed the dog and took him to the Routt County Humane Society. The dog is brown and white with freckly spots on its nose. The search for the owner of the pup is making the news across the state.

A trail of wolf tracks observed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers in Northwest Colorado on January 19, 2020.
A group of wolves is living in northwest Colorado, and it has been confirmed again by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Officers heard howls in the area and were able to see the pack of six wolves, they then found their large tracks, which were as big as 5.5 inches. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says killing a wolf can result in federal charges, including a $100,000 fine and a year in prison, per offense. Contact Colorado Parks and Wildlife through a form on their website if you see or hear a wolf anywhere in the state.
