The Million Dollar Highway, Colorado
Part of the San Juan Skyway All American Byway, the so-called Million Dollar Highway earned its name during the gold rush between Ouray and Silverton, two Victorian towns. Travel writer Stewart M. Green, author of ?Driving California,? ?Scenic Driving Arizona? and ?Back Country Byways,? says this drive boasts ?some of the most spectacular mountain scenery,? in the West. ?It goes through forests, there are some open areas with big meadows and lots of aspen trees changing along the way. It?s popular for leaf viewing.? Be forewarned: This road is not for the faint-hearted. The two-lane road has hairpin turns teetering on the edge of the high cliffs of the Red Mountain Pass. If you?re afraid of heights and on the outer edge, don?t look down; but if you do, the view is astonishing?and literally breathtaking.

Been on this many times. We love Silverton, and have made many trips there from Arizona. Thanks.
