Gold and silver may have put Platoro on the map, but today the town’s precious stock in trade is peace, quiet, and unspoiled wilderness. Set high in the San Juan Mountains, at 10,000 feet above sea level, this former mining town in southern Colorado is hard to get to and even harder to leave. In the heart of it all is the rustic Platoro Cabin 1. Built in the early 1960s, it once served as the headquarters for Forest Service personnel. Today, this modest dwelling can accommodate up to six guests and is powered by propane. It’s equipped with many amenities, but guests will need to bring linens, food, soap, toilet paper, and other sundries. From anglers to snowmobilers, everyone will find something to love at this cozy home base.
