However, we ARE recovering... slow but steady as you will see in the following report.  Most folks who move to the Salida area make their decision based on quality of life.

Many folks bring their cyber companies with them so they can downhill ski, mountain bike, fish and whitewater raft in their spare time without a long drive to get there.    Overall Trends As you ca...

Salida CO Whitewater Competition: Fibark...Same Hole, Different Day   The Arkansas River that runs though Salida Colorado is known for its whitewater. Locals kayak on the rapids year round, even in town. It is common to see them playing in the waves (the one you see to the right is one of them) and running the slalom course, getting ready for summer competitions.    FIBARK (First in Boats on the Arkansas) is our annual competition and celebration and draws boaters from all over the world. You can see 12-71 year olds on the river, following their passion. in 2014, Reilly Stack, 12, was the youngest competitor, and John Ellis was the oldest at age 71. in 2010, -year-old Sage Donnelly of Reno, NV made quite a "splash" in the juniors.Competitors come early, studying the waves and how the lo...

Things to do in Salida Colorado: Float the River   The Arkansas River runs right through downtown Salida. We have a couple of restaurants that overlook the river with all its activity. On any given day, you can see guided raft trips swing through, paddle boards, white water kayaks, inner tubes, and fishing boats pass by.  From May 15 to August 14, the runoff is very high so the only boats you will see are white water kayaks, rodeo kayaks and paddle boards or SUPS (Stand up paddle boards). The skill level of the boaters is high. The various whitewater boats have many different names but here are a few ad names that I use. After the spring runoff, the river becomes a family place to play. Ask any local.... almost everyone knows the cfs (cubic feet per second) and can tell you if it is saf...

  Mountain Biking in Salida Colorado: A Single Track to Paradise   For many who live in Salida, mountain biking in the summer and downhill skiing in the winter is a way of life.    For those who don't live here, it is a destination place to play.   For others, it is a place to pick up the family and move to... many families have moved to the area because of the outdoor lifestyle. My husband Micheal, best friend Patrick, and son Taylor all mountain bike with wild abandon (at least it looks like that to me). They come down from the single track trails around town dirty, sweaty and smiling from ear to ear.   Salida is located at the base of S-mountain, where the Salida Bike Park is located.. within 5 minutes from town, you can find single tracks to challenge the best mountain bikers. Ski ...

Help send a Colorado Montessori Teacher to School   A profession that is near and dear to my heart is teaching. As a veteran teacher of 14 years and a professor who taught teachers for 6 more years, I get the importance of the job. For those of you who have not heard this statistic, teaching requires the 2nd highest number of decisions to make per hour of any career. Number one is an Air Traffic Controller. Some of our best minds are choosing other careers because the pay is not commensurate to the job requirements. So, when people DO go into teaching, they are doing it for the best reasons.... love of the children and passion to teach. That is how I would describe Tegan McDonnough.   Tegan McDonough stole my heart when I first met her. She is working part time at the Chaffee County Mon...

Roland Cook's Artocade Passes through Salida and causes a Stir Roland Cook, a former art teacher with a wacky sense of humor, moved to Trinidad Colorado. When asked by the city to help get Trinidad on the map, he put on his out of the box thinking cap and came up with an Artocade. He knew of a woman, Rebecca Bass who teaches in the inner city Houston schools and has her students create an artcar a year.  Now that is right up Roland's alley.  Between wanting to make it fun and wanting to help Trinidad be found, Artocade was born in 2013.  He was passing through Salida Colorado Friday and was raising quite a ruckus. Everyone was in the street trying to take photos and causing our biggest traffic jam of the year (3 cars) as folks passing by rubbernecked at his car.  Holy cow. What a work o...

Yes You Can Buy a House in Southern Colorado and Work Repairs into the Loan! Think 203K   In the past, buyers were out of luck if they wanted to purchase a house that needs repairs. They would require the work to be done up front before they would lend money on the home. That is where the FHA 203k comes in. Read more...   The 203k loan sets up one mortgage for both acquisition and renovation. They estimate the value of the home as-is and then again, with the projects completed. If it will appraise for the "projects completed" phase,  and the projects are not luxury related but structural, safety, energy and/or livability related, then you have a good chance of getting this type of loan   There are Hud Approved lenders and these lenders have a list of Consultants who can help you with th...
