Wild, wild west town once rich in silver, gold and other minerals as the name of the town suggests. Forgotten mining post , now hidden touristic gem between peaks of the Rocky Mountains and connected by the fantastic "Million Dollar Highway" with Durango town as south end and Ouray town as the north end.

The name of the Million Dollar Highway comes from the supposed rich minerals, now lost, into the dynamited rocks used for the base of the highway.

Wild, wild west town, bogat în argint, aur și alte minerale, după cum sugerează și numele orașului. Oras miner uitat, acuma bijuterie turistică ascunsa printre vârfurile Munților Stâncoși și legat de fantastica "Million Dollar Highway" cu orașul Durango la capatul de sud și orașul Ouray la capatul de nord.

Denumirea Million Dollar Highway vine de la presupusele bogate minerale care au fost ingropate in rocile dinamitate si folosite acum la fundatia autostrăzii.
