|Go walk, bike, drive and find the cool creativity hiding (or in plain sight) that is all around our cool artistic town of Salida. Send me your recommends and info (also about these pictures) any time. Please be respectful of the art, the artists, and the neighbors. Like in the woods, take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but good vibes for the next seeker. Have fun! like I did finding all these locales,with a lil help from my friends!||
