Silverton is one of the 'highest cities in America'. I was lucky enough to catch a sliver of the moon in this shot.
The town of Silverton is a Statutory Town that is the county seat of, and the only incorporated municipality in San Juan County, Colorado, United States. Silverton is a former silver mining camp, most or all of which is now included in a federally designated National Historic Landmark District, the Silverton Historic District. The town population was 531 at U.S. Census 2000.
Located at 9,318 feet in the heart of southwest Colorado's San Juan Mountain's high country, Silverton is a year-round paradise for residents and visitors alike, both of whom this space is meant to serve.
Nestled high in Colorado's stunning San Juan Mountains at 9,318 feet and formally incorporated in 1885, Silverton is a statutory Colorado municipality serving approximately 600 full-time residents along with dozens of unique businesses that cater to Silverton's many thousands of annual visitors.
Silverton boasts, preserves, and celebrates a rich mining history with a storied Old West past which brings those interested in our nation's cultural heritage here on a year-round basis.
In summer months, while hosting outdoor enthusiasts of every kind, Silverton also serves as the termination point for the dramatic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad excursion and we are also known world wide for our acclaimed July 4th all day celebration and fireworks. And in the winter, Silverton is becoming well-known as a world-class alpine sport destination.
The Town itself offers two wonderful amenities depending on the season. Winter visitors should plan to take advantage of the Kendall Mountain Ski Area and Recreation Center, which offers an outdoor skating rink and a single-lift ski area that is both affordable and inviting to beginners and family groups. The beautiful Kendall Mountain facility is also available for conferences and weddings every month of the year.
And during late spring, summer and early autumn months, the Town operates the majestic Molas Lake Campground, located minutes from Town, but offering campers day or multi-day; tent or RV breathtaking views in every direction of the mighty San Juan terrain.
