The average high temperature in Salida in January is 49 degrees, with lows averaging 19 degrees.  Since Mountain Manor is about 1,000 feet higher than Salida, you can anticipate temperatures about 5-10 degrees lower--perfect for a giant fire in the large riverstone fireplace.  In July, the hottest month, the average high in Salida is 77 degrees, with cool, dry nights in the low 60’s.

   

The humidity is quite low, which makes temperature extremes much more pleasant.  If you live in a humid envirnment, though, you might find the dryness challenging.  We provide humidifiers in the house if this is a problem.  And remember to drink lots more water than you are sed to in order to maintain hydration.  Also, the altitude encourages “radiant” (rather than “convective”) heating, which combined with low humidity, makes even sub-zero temperatures seem comfortable.

   

If you are not familiar with the concept of “layering” your clothing in order to be comfortable in wide temperature swings, now is the time to learn.  (You will love it!)
