No Parking

Salida, Colorado lies along the Arkansas River hence the illegally parked kayaks in this downtown alley.  Well, not really.  Like Taos, Salida has about 5,500 residents, an active outdoor lifestyle and a thriving art community that seems to be gaining momentum.  It lives in a so-called "Banana Belt" with moderate temperatures year round.  It's a sweet little spot with an uber cool vibe. One of my faves.

Kayaks to me are among the most appealing forms around.  They're in the heady company of acoustical guitars, road bicycles, champagne flutes and vintage wooden sailing vessels to name a few.

This public service announcement is brought to you a day early for the first time ever.  Gonna hit the macadam for some dark o'clock photo ops tommorow morning.
