Aspens up high are just starting to turn and should peak this weekend-ish. In the meantime, enjoy the gorgeous yellow blossoming of the chamisa, also known as gray rabbitbrush. Just love how it makes this graffiti along the South Ark pop!
Into the Woods was an ambitious choice for a premier, and Salida’s new theater troupe, Sventastik, nailed it! Next up they’ll bring The Little Mermaid to the Steamplant stage.
