Silvershield Trail, Ouray

After seeing the falls, we decided to try this new trail we'd seen driving in. It was pretty steep at some parts, but we only went to the first overlook, which was about 0.3 miles.
A beautiful view of Ouray about halfway up the trail.
At the first overlook, called Memorial Overlook. The bench and rock memorial was built in memory of a woman. What a great place to leave your name!
The northern view...
Across the road were three mining buildings still intact. I've put orange squares around them to help you locate them better. It's amazing how the men even got to work every week!
