We're starting our second night at Sultan tonight about 20 feet back from Mineral Creek. When we arrived yesterday there was just one large tent that still remains unoccupied, and our nearest neighbor was a Class A across Mineral Creek at Anvil.

September/October 2016 Silverton was the first place I stayed in Colorado so it seemed appropriate that it would be one of the last places I’d stay as my summer wrapped up. Kelly and I wanted to see...
