Salida feels like ages ago! It has been the better part of a week since we last had an internet connection that could handle more than a photo per hour. (Ahem.)
Salida, nestled in the mountains of mid-western Colorado, is a 4-hour drive from Fort Collins. It’s the kind of town Dan could possibly talk me into moving to some day: remote enough for Dan, artsy enough for Erica. Salida’s Creative District includes lovely shops and galleries, plus a theater repurposed from an old steam plant.
My favorite part of our quick visit to Salida is tied between the hotel where we stayed — a classic motor lodge with recent, stylish updates…
…or the fire-like sunrise we witnessed on our winding drive through the mountains.
