A Scenic Spring Dive to Silverton, Colorado

Durango, Colorado      H70 L37

It has been a month since Judy and I pulled into Apen Rose RV Park for our workamping season.  All of us here have been busy getting the park ready for all the RVers who will be spending time here. Most will stay for 3 or 4 days but we have a sizable number that will stay a  few months with us. So far attendance is up 7% over this time last year. Last year was the busiest year the park had ever recorded.

Judy and I took our first drive up to Silverton, Co yesterday. Silverton was a busy mining town back in the 1880’s. Tourism has replaced the mining economy now. We enjoy making the drive up to Silverton because the scenery is absolutely stunning no matter the season. Most of the shops are still closed but one our favorite eateries, “The Handlebar Restaurant” was open. Most all the businesses will be open on Memorial Day through Labor Day.
