Exploring the Shoulder Seasons in Salida & Buena Vista

When you live in a mountain town, you learn to love all the seasons. Summer sees the rivers flowing, winter brings the snow for skiing, and the height of fall brings leaf peeping. But there’s that time between, when the leaves have fallen but the mountains aren’t quite ready for skiing. While this might seem like a time to stay away from the high country, it’s just the opposite. Ask any local and they’ll tell you–shoulder season is where it’s at.
