The "Heart of the Rockies" is a crossroads for U.S. Highways 24, 50 and 285. Spanish for "gateway," Salida was originally peopled by the Utes, after whom local mountain peaks are named. In 1878, engineers for the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, anticipating the construction of a railroad through the Great Canyon of the Arkansas, laid out a town named Cleora. In 1880, engineers for the Denver & Rio Grande surveyed the site of a new town one mile to the south, hoping that court batdes for the rail route would be settled in their favor. When the legal wrangling ended, the Denver & Rio Grande had won. The residents of Cleora then moved lock, stock and buildings to the victor, which was first called South Arkansas after the river, which flows past the east side of town. Today, Salida is the Chaffee County seat and a great place to go Whitewater rafting.
