On to Salida

But first, I was so excited to post about Bishop Castle that I forgot to mention an unusual car that we saw parked there – the Witch Car.  The picture doesn’t really do it justice.  All the decorations are just beautifully done.

We spoke to the creators and they were on their way to a decorated car show.  Wouldn’t that be fun to see?

We also enjoyed our car ride to and from the castle, especially the part though Rattlesnake Gulch.

The next day, we continued west on US 50.  At Canon City, the road climbs to bypass the famous Royal Gorge.  I am so angry at the prices charged to experience the gorge that I will never go back.  They have bundled all the touristy activities and made it almost impossible to just get a picture of the gorge and bridge.  But the drive around it has its own charm.

Then we followed the Arkansas River, another gorgeous drive,

To the free BLM Salida East campground.  No services, not even trash, but conveniently located just outside of one of our favorite towns, Salida, Colorado.

  1. Wouldn't want to get into a road rage situation with the owners of that car or you'd might find yourself the recipient of a serious spell... :cD
