“Mild to Wild Jeep Trail Tours – Animas Forks Ghost Town”

This was an amazing trip following the Animas River out of Silverton, Colorado. Our guide, Frank Miller, has lived in the area most of his life and knew the trail, the mines and history, and the ghost town as no one else could. To find out how these miners lived and worked in the heyday of the silver and gold mining was truly an education. The starting point for the trip, Silverton, would be worth devoting a day to exploring. AND, riding in the old Austrian Pinzgauer high-mobility all-terrain military vehicle was a trip in itself.
