Carie and I drove from Denver to Durango and back in early September. We caught a little bit of color change, but mostly enjoyed the amazing roads through the mountains! 

They don’t call it the Million Dollar Highway for nothing! But first… getting there is a pretty nice drive too.

Wolf Creek Pass,


We arrived in Durango late afternoon, took a stroll through town, stopped at a couple breweries, had thai for dinner, camped out in the van. Bright and early the next morning, we headed north to Silverton.

Somewhere on the MDH,


Molas Pass,


Descending into Silverton gave us a wide view of the remote town,


Downtown Silverton,


County Sherrif’s building,


Somewhere on the way to Ouray,


We drove through the Curecanti rec area along the Gunnison River on our way back over Monarch Pass and home.


Is there anything cooler than speedboats? (no)
