Salida CO

This is the last stop on the trip.  Salida is about 1hr 40 min away from Crested Butte and sits about a thousand feet lower at 7k and change BUT the surrounding Mountains are huge.  After some trail beta from the 3 shops in town headed over to the Arkansas trail system which is right downtown across the river ( same name ).

It seems they have a local Monarch Crest ride on July 4th that sees locals heading out for this " fun group ride " at 4 a.m. and hitting 90 some miles of classic Colorado singletrack.  Tomorrow's out back on the Crest will have to do.
