The famous Million Dollar Highway (US550)highway runs through this section of the San Juans from Ouray to Silverton and connects a number of old mining sites.Red Mountain Pass is a scenic favorite.

Description

We were camping in the San Juan Mountains above Ouray and enjoying the area's spectacular color when we decided to take a drive up the Million Dollar Highway.Near the summit this scene appeared in our rear view mirror and I found it irresistible. A short time later a huge hail storm swept through the area stripping many of the leaves from the trees.
