salida colorado

Spontaneous Camping Weekend - Salida, Colorado

Aaron thought it would be a good idea for us to escape our daily routine and try out the soft topper he bought for his truck. I'm still getting used to camping so every little noise wakes me. The soft topper was great. I felt safe from all the mice and deer (which are probably hundreds of feet away). I still think we're going to get a bear visitor, but luckily we haven. I can't wait to go camping with the soft topper in Yellowstone next month.

We were lucky to miss a storm that skirted Salida and we were even luckier with the sunset and some nice alpenglow at sunrise. We spent some time fishing the Arkansas River. He caught one, but I came up short. River fishing isn't easy so I spent most of my time soaking my feet in the refreshing 60 something degree waters leaving my camera behind. 

(If you can't tell, we love our new Patagonia hats!)
