Silverton, Colorado

I arrived in Silverton on the Durango-Silverton Railway. The layover was 2 hours so everyone could explore and have lunch during that time.

I decided to find a place to get a quick sandwich and then wander through the town to take pictures. The buildings are historic and some of the main streets are hard-packed dirt. Unfortunately, there is so much to see, it's not possible to see it all just two hours, especially when you stop for ice cream after lunch! The restaurant shown below was a saloon and bordello back in the early 1900s.

It's obviously very tourist-oriented, with numerous restaurants within a few blocks, as well as ice cream shops and gift shops. It would be a fun place to spend more time.
