Explore Alpine Loop, Ghost Towns, and more!

I was on a business trip that had me driving from Durango to Glenwood Springs. That drive is all mountain. Coming out of a pass after about an hour is Silverton. Damnedest thing you ever saw. A little town in the middle of nowhere nestled right in the valley. Definitely an "uhh, what?" moment in my travels.

This gravel road excursion through a land of mountain peaks and the rich history of mining and logging as you travel from Silverton to the ghost town of Animas Forks is a perfect side-trip off the San Juan Skyway Alpine Loop is a scenic drive in Colorado.
