Durango, CO to Ouray, CO to Durango, CO – 142 Miles

US 550 from Durango to Ouray is known as the Million Dollar Highway. It is one of my favorite rides and I usually ride it a few times a month during the summer. There are several different stories explaining how it got that name, but the most popular is that it cost a million dollars a mile to build it in the 1920s. You can read the Wikipedia explanation at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Route_550

The weather report said that today was going to be a great day with a high of 83F in town and I just couldn’t think of a good reason not to go for a ride.

It felt good to get back on the motorcycle, but the traffic this time of year is kind of heavy with all the tourists. I stopped to take pictures a few times when I got behind a particularly slow group of vehicles. I apologize that these are not the most scenic parts of the drive, just where I stopped because of slow traffic.
