This week for Walking Wednesdays, my friend and I continue our walk
in Salida, Colorado, along the Arkansas River.
"S" Mountain overlooking Salida
We had fun watching all of the different ways to float down the river.
Here's a raft with oars.
Armchair innertubes hooked together
Another raft with oars and a special chair for fishing
Children in life vests letting the current take them down the river
A dog enjoying the trip down the river
Innertubers loving the challenge of the whitewater
Kayakers practicing their moves and tricks
How long can he stay standing?
Lovely, old cottonwoods at Riverside Park line the river.
Their trunks can be enormous!
Our favorite place to eat was the Boathouse Cantina. We loved sitting on their covered patio overlooking the river, watching the rafters and kayakers. The first time, we split the Duck Tostadas and the Flatiron Steak Burrito. The next time, we split the Chorizo Green Chili Mussels and the Boater Burger. We thought all of the food was delicious and the setting very relaxing.
