Silverton, Colorado


A breathtaking view of this once prosperous mining town - Silverton, Colorado

Over the years more than $500,000,000 in silver, gold, lead and zinc have been taken from its mines.  On three sides is the beautiful San Juan National Forest - over two million acres of stately aspen, pine and fir trees.
