The Animas River runs along US HWY 550, also known as the Million Dollar Highway for obvious reasons. This photo was taken just outside of Silverton Colorado, a small ski town in the middle of this vast mountain wilderness. It was in this town where Red Bull built Sean White his own personal private superpipe so that he could prepare to win the Olympics. During the winter months, the sounds of Helis and Snow Cats taking skiers and riders up to the peaks of this AK style terrain echo through the mountains. In the summer, mountain bikers, climbers, and tons of mountain off-road trails make this a truly epic mountain paradise!!!
