A route well worth taking. Especially between Silverton and Ouray; this section is exceptional in both road and scenery. spectacular.
Independence Pass. Elevation of 3686 m./12,095 ft. Can still be closed early spring or fall. Narrow lanes. No long vehicles permitted. Great experience. Do it!
A wickedly twisty 20 mile section of curves leading down to the lake at Nederland. Try not to get distracted by the climbers on the steep granite faces!
Leave from Grand Junction on Highway 50 before turning right on Colorado Highway 141. This road will take you through the spectacular red rock scenery of the Unaweep Canyon. A truly memorable experience.
