Spring Break Salida 2012

I spent last week (CSU Spring Break), camping by the Arkansas river and biking the local trails in Salida.  I tried riding in Golden, but there was still 2 feet of snow at White Ranch, so I busted up to Salida and found great riding.  All of the Arkansas trail system was completely ride able and some of Little Rainbow.  I happened across a driftwood filled campsite right on the river and was able to start a fire with little effort.  The weather was warm enough that I was able to swim in the river and get a sunburn.  I coincidentally ran into old friends in the bike shop, the bar, and even on trail.  Truly a home away from home.  Thanks to Scotty for cookin all the delicious food, and thanks to Jason and Wade at SubCulture Bike Shop for the t-shirt and simply just givin me a place to hang.  As usual, amazing town, amazing people, amazing trip.  Git up there and rip!
Local trails.  Good for a couple days of ridin.  Love the jumps at the bottom.
