Buena Vista, Colorado, pronounced by the locals in the German fashion, "be-yooooo-na-vista," has to be one of the most fashionable one stop light towns I've ever seen. And right in the heart of the tiny downtown, the Buena Vista Coffee Roastery and Bakery. We stop in at least twice a day. One only has to glance around town to see where the local artist Jessie Orlet (whose paintings are displayed at the roastery) has drawn inspiration; there are horses and deer grazing in every other lot.
