Chaffee County...now this is COLORADO!

Salida Colorado is a gorgeous little town on the Arkansas River. It is surrounded by "14ers"(14000 ft mtns.) Year'round fun with world class skiiing in the winter..world class rafting in spring and summer..and hunting in the fall. The downtown of Salida has gone from 1/2 of the buildings empty and run down to an amazing rejuvination, including cafes and amazing galleries, in just 10 years!! It went from kind of a cowboy town to an artist community. Its always been a year round tourist destination, but the improvements of downtown have really upped the overall look and feel of Salida.
