~ San Juan County Times ~
A miner in from the mountains for supplies was asked about the new diggings.  
He said . . "There ain't much gold there, . . but there is
silver by the ton."
And Silverton it has been ever since.

My camper and dog with the Christmas tree
that is in the center of the main intersection.  
Looking down the main street -  
Center of town.
The area does get
a little snow.
Looking up from the center of town.
