We will take you on a five minute road trip between Ouray, Colorado and Silverton, Colorado along the Million Dollar Highway. We took this day trip while camping out at the Ouray RV Park and Cabins. You will see old mine shafts that date back to the 1800’s Tailings from the old mines. Miners houses and some very beautiful country.
The Switzerland of America – along the back roads and Scenic Byways: you can see vistas where old Hollywood westerns were filmed and explore high country ghost towns that were once booming mining cities. Ouray is also known as “The Jeeping Capital of the World.” Regardless of the season or the purpose of your visit, a trip to the famous, sulfur-free Ouray Hot Springs Pool is always a treat. With nearly one-million gallons of naturally heated water from deep in the earth, the hot springs pool has been a soothing destination for generations.
The Million Dollar Highway delivers jaw-dropping vista after vista. It was cut from the side of the mountain and became know as the “Million Dollar Highway”. It’s one of the most scenic drives in the USA. There are several legends, though, including that it cost a million dollars a mile to build it, this is in the 1800’s and that its fill dirt contains a million dollars in gold ore.
