This cute little guy greeted us at the start of the hike the next morning. The view of Salida from the hike with a yucca in bloom We moved north of Buena Vista with this view above the Arkansas River. We saw lots of kayakers – this was before the big weekend of the first Dissent festival. We headed to Denver for a family filled weekend at my nephew’s including a 7th birthday party, and Father’s Day. It was very hot but we got a parking place for the MINI and loaded the van with items we couldn’t carry with us on the plane to Texas.
