Salida, CO - The Banana Belt

For the first two days of our stay in Salida, we weren't quite sure why they called this area the "Banana Belt" of Colorado. Considering it was in the 20's when we awoke and we could literally see snowstorms on the mountains, you can't blame us for our doubt, right? Well, considering the town is in a desert valley sandwiched between two mountain ranges (the Sawatch and Sangre de Cristo), I guess they figure that since the weather is always warmer on the valley floor its almost tropical - well, in comparison to the fourteeners peering down on them.
