Mt Wilson and the San Miguel Mountains




Mt Wilson and the San Miguel Mountains





Taken on our January roadtrip, this view of Mt Wilson is from an overlook on the road to Mesa Verde. Mt Wilson is a fourteen thousand foot mountain peak in Colorado. It is located in the Lizard Head Wilderness 10 miles (16 km) southwest of Telluride and west of Durango on US 160. It is the highest peak in the San Miguel Mountains, a subrange of the San Juan Mountains. The peak was named for A. D. Wilson, a topographer with the Hayden Survey. He was in the first ascent party on September 13, 1874.

Mount Wilson, and the rest of the San Miguel Mountains, are made up of a large, irregular tertiary igneous intrusion.

The Mount Wilson region became the site of intense mining activity, particularly for silver, in the early 1880s. The most famous of these mines was the Silver Pick Mine.

Mount Wilson is most recognizable as a staple icon on many Coors beer products.













Storm Peak and Silverton, CO (2)




Storm Peak and Silverton, CO (2)





The historic town of Silverton sits at an elevation of 9,300 feet above sea level, in the red San Juan Mountains of southwest Colorado. The Animas River flows through town on its way to Durango, and the famous Million Dollar Highway provides the only year-round access to town.

The area was opened to settlement and mining by a treaty with the Ute tribe in 1874, and at the peak of its silver mining activity, the town boasted a population in the thousands.

Mining has since ceased in the area, and the population is now around 531. Tourism is now the primary source of revenue for Silverton.
