A Little Mountain Air

Greetings from Salida, Colorado!! 

This cozy little mountain town is full of fresh air and touts that it is "the biggest little art town in Colorado!" After a day of strolling down the historic downtown main street I would have to agree...and I got lucky! This weekend Salida is having their "art walk-around". The stores stay open until 9:00, there are street musicians, people milling about and all the local artist are at the stores. Really fun stuff. You may be wondering how in the world am I getting Kaiser on board? Well the true reason we are here is to do a little mountain climbing with the ATV.

Sorry Ladies, this hunk of man is allllll mine!!
But anyway I struck a brilliant compromise and said "You go 4-wheel to your heart's content, and I will reciprocate with shopping"...That's what you call a "win-win" situation.

Salida is truly a quaint little jewel tucked away between Aspen and Colorado Springs. It was so cute that my trigger finger got itchy and I had to take out my camera before I took out my wallet...

 They like really, they told me!

 Hey I tell ya, if it's not light houses with me, it's bicycles!

You know I am coming back here for my morning cup!
Salida was really great, and I was a good sport and went 4-wheeling with Kaiser one day. I got some fantastic stories and pictures of mountain scenery and even an abandoned mining town! Next post.....
