backpack London Conkca leather handcrafted brown Conker 'Simone' Purgatory is a mountain community that feels like home but is like no place you've ever been.

A central ground between the quintessential Colorado mountain town of Durango and the uniqueness of the Four Corners Region.

Whether you’re looking for heart pounding adventure or a relaxing vacation in the Rocky Mountains, once you've been to Purgatory you'll understand why so many visitors head to Southwest Colorado year after year.

The name Purgatory comes from a witty farmer who lived in the area during the late 1800s and adopted the moniker for a nearby creek, a tributary of the Rio de las Anima Perdidas (the River of Lost Souls), dubbed by Spanish explorers for a group who disappeared on the river during Durango's early history.
