I spent this past weekend hanging out in Salida, CO. We went with no plan, only having heard what a creative and outdoorsy community Salida is. What we didn't know was how friendly everyone would be and how much fun we would have. We stumbled upon great restaurants, live Bluegrass music, and this great spot on the Arkansas river. We spent the day swimming, jumping off rocks, sketching for me and fly fishing for Chad. There is already talk of a return trip to go rafting. I took lots of pics with my Diana camera, and will post some once they are developed.
