Salida is a town about 2 hours from Colorado Springs. We often drive out there just to relax and enjoy the scenery. It's located in a valley surrounded by mountains. Monarch Ski area is just down the road, as are the College Peaks. There are ample opportunities for activity also. Everything from white-water rafting in the spring and summer, to skiing in the winter. Rock hunters find plenty to interest them and the rivers support fly-fishermen.
