Last one...we had a great time in Salida...


We visited beautiful Salida, Colorado today. We searched for the closest Wal-Mart from Buena Vista and Salida came up. We needed to do some stocking up, we found the Wal-Mart and a lot more. The town is absolutely beautiful, it is surrounded with outstanding mountains plus the Arkansas River runs right through town.

We enjoyed shopping in this colorful town before having lunch at the Boathouse Restaurant overlooking the Arkansas River. We choose outdoor seating so we could watch all the people and dogs below. Two dogs were chasing after balls thrown into the water, the blonde older dog was having a hard time, the black dog kept taking the ball right out of his mouth. This went on for quite a while, we enjoyed our fish tacos while watching the battle go on below. :-)

After lunch, we walked around Riverside Park and drove through more of the town. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Another awesome day in Colorado, check back later for more.
