Pit stop to Silverton

I didn't expect this to be right off the main highway, but it was. Nice little stop on the way to Silverton.

This is a great spot to take a pic op the hot springs and your group...or just of yourself. It shows the geothermal dynamics that surround the entire area. Take a 10 minute break from the drive....and smile!

This was something we stumbled upon and had to stop and see what people were stopping for. It is very interesting and beautiful to photograph. A nice little stop on your way to Silverton on the right hand side of the road.

We stopped to check out this hot spring that was right on the side of the road. The top temperature coming out was around 92 degrees and became cooler as it came down the sides. Nice pictures of family by the hot springs.

This natural wonder gurgles right up on the side of Hwy 550 headed up from Durango. Pull over and take a few snap shots before heading up to Purgatory Ski Area or over Molas Pass to Silverton.

Only saw this from the roadside- stopped a brief minute. Nature made this for us to enjoy- unlike anything I've seen above ground. On the East coast you see things like this in the underground caves, but this is above ground. You can stand on it- but its slick. If there was more to see other than just this formation... More

So many beautiful colors on the rock. Great view of the mountains and a wonderful spot for pictures! There is an easy on and off lookout!

We've been coming to Durango for years before moving here. We happened to camp near Pinkerton and stopped several times. The mound is interesting the first visit. We've gone with friends but there isn't much to see or do beyond feel the water and take a picture.
