Photos Around Salida, Colorado

Salida, Colorado - In The Heart Of The Rockies
November 2013 - I've lived in Salida for almost a month and I have a number of extra mountain shots that I've taken. Now, I have made photo galleries for when I biked Poncha Pass, cruised on the Monarch Spur Trail, hiked Tenderfoot Mountain and photographed mountains in western Fremont County. If Salida and southern Chaffee County are of particular interest to you, then I encourage you to visit my Salida index page. It's still a work-in-progress, but there are more hikes and content there:
