Salida Sunshine and Wind

Biker on mountainside trail

Early spring brings a bit of unpredictable weather, sunny mornings, windy afternoons and a little snow mixed in. After 10 years here I still fall for the sunshine and get stuck at a baseball game in a puffy coat and sandals. The mountains are still getting regular snow making for great fair weather skiing at Monarch Mountain on the bluebird days. It’s also a great time for a hike or mountain bike ride on lower elevation trails. Our local bike shop, Absolute Bikes, is stocking up and posts regular trail condition updates. Salida Mountain Trails has been working to complete some new trails on Tenderfoot, be sure to check them out on your next visit. For now I will patiently wait for the fishermen as they are sure sign that Spring is here.
