Tucked away in the San Juan National Forest northeast of Durango, Colorado, the Lemon Reservoir is a beautiful, secluded alpine lake created by the Lemon Dam. The Lemon Dam was built in 1963 for the purpose of storing water for irrigation. All in all, the Lemon Reservoir takes up about 622 acres of surface area in the Weminuche Wilderness, which is approximately 3 miles long by a half of a mile wide. Swimming, fishing, hiking, and camping is permitted.
Discover the archaeological heritage of the Ancestral Pueblo people that lived in the area for over 700 years. Established in 1906, Mesa Verde National Park hosts the most iconic and well-preserved cliff dwellings in the US. This UNESCO World Heritage site is a must-see for anyone visiting the Southwest.
In 1860, prospectors began to explore the Ute Territory of the mountains and found both gold and silver in what we now know as the "Baker's Park" area. After the Civil War, miners returned and established Silverton as a legal town in 1874. The town attracted miners to its various mining camps for many years. Silverton was intended to be a respite from the harsh lifestyle of a minor and as a result, held many saloons and a red-light district, Notorious Blair Street.
Silverton today... Silverton ceased to be an active mining town in the 1990s as the demand for gold and silver decreased. While there is still gold and silver left, much of what makes Silverton attractive today is the abundance of outdoor recreational activities. In total, the town of Silverton is only around 0.8 square miles according to the US Census Bureau. It may be a small mountain town, but it is also a site for many adventures.
