Experience the Rocky Mountains from a car instead of on skis. The San Juan Highway – a total of about 160 miles – is filled is zigzagging routes and sharp turns, which is great if you only want to see unique and odd natural rock formations. Make sure you drive the canyon-clinging stretch between Silverton and Ouray, which is called the Million Dollar Highway, for some of the most breathtaking views you can see on any road.
