RV Day 7

7 April 2015

Today we left Montrose after spending 3 nights there. We really liked Montrose and spent our last night at the Horsefly Brew Company so Dad could watch the basketball and have some buffalo wings. We drove from Montrose to Cortez through Ouray and Silverton. Today we drove part of the San Juan Skyway. The part we drove is called the Million Dollar Highway. The Million Dollar Highway section of the Skyway between Ouray and Silverton is one of the most scenic and spectacular mountain drives in North America. This famous section of the Skyway winds through the iron-coloured Red Mountains, along the sheer side of the Uncompahgre Gorge, through tunnels and past cascading waterfalls. The Red Mountain Pass was over 11,000 feet.
