There's A Tiny Town In Colorado Completely Surrounded By Breathtaking Natural Beauty
When it comes to Colorado, there is no shortage of tiny towns and incredible scenery to go around… but when it comes to a tiny town completely surrounded by breathtaking scenery? You can only find that in the small mountain town of Silverton:
Located amidst the enchanting San Juan Mountains, Silverton is a tiny town of nearly 650 of the luckiest people in Colorado.
Getting to enjoy this view everyday? #blessed
Established as a mining town in 1874, Silverton is known as much for its charming downtown area as it is for...
...historic attractions like the unforgettable Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad...
...and a number of epic outdoor recreational opportunities!
While we love nearly every aspect of this small San Juan town, our favorite part of all has to be Silverton's jaw-dropping surroundings.
