Southwest USA 2001

(Page 4 of 6)


Million Dollar Highway
(US Hwy 550)


This highway in southwest Colorado runs between Montrose and Durango.

It runs through spectacular scenery, particularly between Ouray and Durango.



It's not exactly clear why it's called the "Million Dollar Highway", except possibly because of the scenery.  There's mining in the area too, so the name may refer to the value of the mines.
