We did the entire ride from Durango to Cortez. The sights you will see on this scenic road are ones you will remember for a lifetime. You will encounter towns such as Silverton, Ouray, Telluride, and Ridgeway along your path. Silverton is the quintessential western town. As we drove into town, we were sure we would be asked to "relinquish our six shooters". Stayed overnight at Ouray just another example of a wonderful western town together with it's hot springs makes for a relaxing and beautiful stay. And Ridgeway, the location where True Grit was filmed is amazing. You can ride the gondola for free in Telluride which provides you with excellent views. This road is one you should put on your list of things not to miss. It will permanently leave a mark after you get home.
