The rugged mining town of Silverton is a living and breathing piece of Colorado history. It is a temple of resilience in the eye of vicious storms and unforgiving winters at the foot and the mercy of towering mountains just as much as its people represent the sacrifice of living the life of a frontiersman or woman.
Few towns experience Coloradoâ€™s moody seasonal changes more pronounced than Silverton â€” and few people wear that more as a badge of honor than those living in this quirky, tight-knit community. After all, dealing with adversity more often than not is a feat easier accomplished in lockstep with your neighbors, may they be physical or spiritual in nature.
I am continuously inspired by all those who give up comfort to follow their truest calling, and with â€œSTANDING TALL,â€ I want to pay tribute to those who do â€” whether they live in Silverton, Colorado, or elsewhere: This piece is a homage to those who stand up for what they believe in.
