              Silverton is located in the heart of the lower San Juan Mt range. It is incredibly pristine and some what remote. I cannot think of a more beautiful place anywhere in the world and I have traveled extensively. There is everything that you might imagine in the area surrounding Silverton inclusive of historic and outdoor venues that would take years to explore. The historic Durango - Silverton train is a main draw in the summer and Silverton Mt. Ski area in the winter.

              Other Activities: Mt climbing, hiking, birding, flowers, river running, kayaking
