    My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful day of Spring skiing in late March. We arrived around 0830 and enjoyed coffee and breakfast burritos in the lodge. After breakfast, we enjoyed an excellent ski day! No lift lines, fresh powder, plenty of sunshine - and best of all, very few people! This is also one of the more affordable resorts in the state.

    I grew up skiing on this mountain, and it hasn't changed much since then. This is a much better option for those who want to ski for skiing's sake, and not just go to a brand-name resort for status and social media posts.

    The tram, of course, is fun. If you're lucky and have good weather, the views are amazing and you can spend as much time as you'd like on top of the mountain. However, do not miss the fabulous store/snack bar at the base. They have the most beautiful clothing, souvenirs, jewelry, accessories, home decor, outdoor decor and snacks. I was blown away by the handbags/tote bags, great quality and prices and selection. Be sure to check these out; they would make wonderful gifts. The fudge is yummy, too.

    We enjoyed several afternoon and evening walks in downtown Salida, Colorado. There was much going on at the river, where people were sunning/swimming/rafting/ or just floating down the river. One guy found a great-handing chair to sit and read over the water!

    Stop in on a Saturday afternoon. The four of us sat up at the bar. Bartender was very pleasant and made a great drink. The liquor they make I thought was very good. Want to go back.

    We drove through Salida and all I could imagine was living here. Deer eating out of people’s yards, people walking the neighborhood, the coolness in the air. We took the Spiral Drive mainly cuz we heard you can see everything. Just be careful cuz Waze gave us the wrong directions but just follow your signs and you’ll be up the mountain. Anyway, we got to the top and it’s really breathtaking. The views were amazing and I could see trails down below and said if I lived here this is where I would be! Definitely put it on your list!

    We found this on our way home and stopped. Nice place, friendly staff, good price. Three pools total. A Small younger kids type pool with water features. The larger pool has a small slide, diving board, climbing wall, and lap lanes. The middle pool is the warmest it was 101 degrees on our visit. Not too busy. Clean and easy parking.

    The volunteer staff was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. He answered all our many questions about the area and the history of the hatchery. He also gave us big buckets of fish food so we could feed them. There's tons of fish pools - more than you can see when you first get there. It was a great experience.

    The area is super nice for relaxing, sticking your feet in the water or tubing. We tubed down and the water levels were so high and the current so strong that all 6 of us, ended up out of our tubes at least 2 times. I thought the life jackets were a joke but probably saved our lives. It was scary through the rapids.

    Went to a special presentation on local Ute Prayer Trees presented by the author of the book the offered for sale there. It was fascinating! Followed by a group hike to see some of those trees, although I wasn't able to go on that.

    Hidden in the back of this gallery is the option to paint your own pottery. This is a great rainy day activity for your kids. My children have painted several items at the Maverick Potter. Most recently, my oldest son chose a large elaborate coy fish to paint. They were very helpful and patient while my son selected and mixed his paint colors, and spent a ton of time painting the individual scales of the fish. Great relaxing activity, good for the whole family. Highly recommend.

    Obviously, each person enjoys art in their own special way. However, we find it hard to imagine that - even given that tastes differs widely - anyone would walk into Katie's gallery and not being amazed by her work, her talent and her personality. We have looked for paintings or photographs for our Breckenridge mountain home for over 3 years. Our issue was, that we wanted something that catches the spirit of our flora and fauna but isn't the "same old, same old". We were about to cave and buy into one of these "classic mountain scenes" when we stumbled about Katies work. Her talent to caption the dynamic and power of animals in vibrant colors is so refreshing and her paintings (we came for one and ended up with three) are now centerpieces in our home. Make the drive to the charming town of Salida and be amazed yourself!

    I’m my from Texas and I love wineries. This winery is tucked away in Salida but definitely worth going too. The atmosphere was beautiful and the wines were delicious. Plus pet friendly!
