When staying in Ouray, a trip over the Million Dollar Highway has to be made to the town of Silverton.
This town is uniquely beautiful, nestled in the mountains with a river running through it. There is a railroad that still leads into the town, and takes passengers to Durango.
I even had a little help with my railroad explorations. Ava had to check out the tracks, while my dad and husband walked through with me.
There are plenty of historic and beautiful buildings in town.
If you get a chance to head up this way, you must check out Handlebars for a burger! It’s delicious!
