Colorado Classic Campout

This weekend we skipped out of town for the Colorado Classic Campout. Last summer we were given an amazing 1970 Rolite Retract-A-Wall camper and it sparked our love for all things with vintage campers. For Andy's birthday my parents gave him (us) the gift of going to the Colorado Classic Campout at the Starlite Campground. Starlite has a bunch of vintage campers you can rent on the campgrounds or you can bring your own. My parents brought their pink Shasta trailer and we brought our camper - complete with brand-spankin-new curtains and throw pillows. We were able to tour all the other campers there. I loved being able to see what other people are doing with their campers and get some ideas about what we want to do with ours.
We also drove into Salida one day. If I couldn't live in my little town, I would live in Salida. Salida is the perfect combination of outdoorsy and artsy. It has amazing art boutiques and creative, environmentally friendly businesses. It has tons of cruiser bikes and an amazing bouldering wall for kids. The Arkansas River runs through town and you can go rafting and fly fishing. We also heart Amica's Pizza and Mircobrewery there...it's the best! I am looking forward to going there again very (hopefully) soon!
