Friday, January 3, 2014
Silver Mountain is one of the more prominent peaks of the La Plata Mountains seen from Durango. As its name suggests, it was found to host veins of the precious metal. While mining of the mountain is now a thing of the past, one may still find traces of galena, lead, pyrite and traces of gold and silver in the mountain.
