Little Switzerland United States & The Million Dollar Highway
Photo By Samantha Lyn Samuelson

  • Title: Little Switzerland United States & The Million Dollar Highway
  • State/Province/Region: Colorado
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Uncompahgre National Forest
  • Nearest Town: Ouray
  • Brief Directions: Highway 550
  • Description: Love the blue sky, deep canyons, hot springs, box canyon, quaint buildings and charm of Ouray. Definitely one of My Favorite Places. The Million Dollar Highway (million dollars was lots of money when the highway was built) is a real cliff hanger with breath-taking scenery. The scenic highway goes over Red Mountain Pass at 11,018 ft. The highway connects the mountain towns of Silverton and Ouray. Both towns mining history lingers today in the buildings and "remnants left behind". Mount Abrahms shown in image is 12,810 ft.

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!

    That moose is a "spike" i.e. a very young juvenile, probably on his first year away from mom. His antler's will fill out further in the next few years.

    Very interesting post Donna and Mike on Moose/Antlers. Not sure what may have caused the change in antlers, but pretty sure the one will end up looking like one of these in a few years.
