Flowers in Silverton

Wednesday, we drove over the Million Dollar Highway from Ouray to Silverton.  The road is called by that name because of the cost paid to bill it.  Today, it also refers to the views.  I will show some of those views in another post.

Silverton is an old silver mining camp located an an elevation of 9,307 ft.  It was founded in 1885. 

We again saw flowers in a walk around Silverton.  I thought this wagon  was creative.

Look at all this different colors.

We saw a window box on the second story of this old building.  Very pretty, from inside and out.

More lupine and daisies.

The blue columbine is Colorado's state flower and we see them often.

I had never seen white columbine before.
