CityStream: Seattle's Last Carriage Ride Operator

In this hectic, fast-paced world one man has resisted the urge to speed things up. In fact, Steve Beckmann prefers the slow lane. For decades, he's trotted around Seattle - most recently with his horse Amos - offering carriage rides to anyone interested. The pace is slow, but the view of the city is spectacular. At one point, Beckmann says there were four or five carriage-ride companies in town, now it's just him. He has no idea how much longer he'll keep it up, but one thing's for sure, the pace won't change. Producer Ian Devier takes a slow ride on the streets of Seattle.
