(nr San Juan River Village CO)
On my last visit to the area I missed seeing Silver Falls. It was further off the highway than expected; but, well worth the drive. A narrow gravel road, with plenty of rocks, hills, and a stream to ford made it a bit challenging.
A fairly steep trail followed the edge of the river. The reward was a double drop waterfall with multiple, exciting cascades below. Getting good photos with the right viewpoint took some contortions.
The East Fork of the San Juan River provided wonderful scenes along the way, too. Wide vistas, river rapids, rocks, cliffs, wildflowers and tall trees provided lots of eye candy.
My camping spot was right next to the river with shade trees, a nice view of cliffs and the surrounding landscape. About halfway to the falls, it made a perfect camp.
