"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Moving to Salida


We made the move down to Salida, CO on Thursday.  Some of the crew decided to do a river trip down the headwaters of the Arkansas River.

Wanda and I decided to sit this one out, but drove down to the takeout spot to watch their arrival.

A few other shots.  Forgot my camera and these were taken with phone.  Tough getting it in and out of pockets while harnessed up.

Everyone had a blast.  Hope to do it again, soon.
