Beautiful mountain views! The Collegiate Peaks, Sanger de Cristina and Sawatch Mountains are visible from our property, making for lovely sunsets. The area is quite rural, lots of ranches and open spaces. Our driveway, where our Boondockers Welcome guests park, is large and has a lot of room but it's a bit uneven, so come prepared with levelers! Suggested Local Attractions:Rafting,fishing, golfing, road and mountain biking and hiking are popular summer activities here. Winter activities include Alpine and Nordic skiing as well as snowshoeing. There is an indoor hot springs swimming pool in town, and a handful of other hot springs in the area. Craft breweries, a variety of restaurants and art galleries all complement our friendly little mountain town.

Colorado Composter Details: We love all things outdoors! Hiking, skiing, biking, but not into fishing. We both love to travel and meet new people. Hubby is a homebrewer, so there's usually a bevvy of awesome and tasty brews available at our house. Home Town: Salida, CO Favorite Boondocking Locations: All places of beauty, especially places where we haven't been yet. Skills or Expertise to Share: I like to fix things! We had a home repair business for 10+ years here in Salida, did lots of plumbing and electrical, and just about anything else that came our way. We're pretty handy when it comes to figuring out what's wrong with something that's not working correctly. And Trish is a Master Composter. :) Worms in the basement eating our kitchen food scraps. Doug is a master homebrewer, best homebrew in the county, maybe even the state!

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and staying with Trish and Doug. What's not to love about the smell of fresh hops cooking in the brewing kettle in the garage just behind my rig. Delightful company and great town. We'll be back.

Trish and Doug are great hosts, Doug is a home brewer and is passionate about his beers. Spent some time chatting on their patio along with some of their friends. Made us feel like we've been friends for a long time. Explored Salida, hiked and visited some hot springs. Will be back!

We love Salida, it's such a friendly little town. These Hosts embody that friendly spirit. They were so welcoming and accommodating. My husband and I both loved chatting with them and hearing their stories. Hope to visit again sometime!

We loved our stay with Trish and Doug. You can tell how much they love having guests and offered us some home-brewed beer upon our arrival. The views are amazing to boot! Would love to stay with them again.
