Very cold on the river 

Driving to Salida from Buena Vista is not as scenic as the drive to Leadville, however it does have its own gems. One of the few gems is the stretch of the Arkansas River from Joe Cogan’s property to Fisherman’s Bridge. When driving past Cogan’s homestead one is rewarded with an excellent view of the river from Hwy 285. This particular mountain morning rewarded commuters with a rare scene, water vapor hanging above the river in the river channel itself.  It looked like a foggy ribbon of vapor flowing downstream with and above the water. A great close up could be had from Fisherman’s Bridge, both upstream and downstream views are provided.

Downstream…

Upstream…

The temperature this morning on the bridge read -2.
