Salida is a popular town in the southwest part of Colorado. We stayed in an RV park in nearby Howard--a mistake--but we enjoyed visiting Salida where we did our daily walks, as well as grocery shopping and laundry. There are a lot of really attractive restored buildings in the downtown area.
We also saw some curious--or odd--sights in town.
Monarch Ski Area is nearby and old skis have been used in creative ways.
I have no idea what this is up on a pole.
This care was unusual, to say the least.
Making this wooden bicycle would have been a lot of work--and creative.
The Arkansas River runs through town. We walked along the River Trail and we saw rafters and kayakers.
