Ghost Town Tour- Take a trip just miles north of Silverton into a bygone era with a visit to the ghost town of Animas Forks, a National Register of Historic Places site.  Once billed as the "largest city in the world" with the small print qualifier "at this elevation" of 11,300 feet.  With the first cabin built in 1873, a short three years later, the bustling town had approximately 30 cabins, a hotel, general store, saloon, and even a post office.  As with many mining towns in the west, Animas Forks slowly dwindled and despite a brief resurgence in 1904 with the Gold Prince Mill,  by the 1920's it had become one of Colorado's mining ghost towns.
