I agree! I've looked at my Truckers' Guide for Mountain Driving and saw their concern with that route via Ouray and Silverton. It was a scary read and we have decided to go north from Montrose into Utah, then south to the Grand Canyon. Thanks for your input.

We've done a couple of those type roads - where there is little to no edge and looking straight down - and my co-pilot said then "never again!" And we were in the Toad! I'd have to "medicate" her to make the SW Colorado route to the CG.

I see you have decided on your trip. But....we drove to Montrose on 50 picked up 550 to 62 to 145 into Cortez. If I remember correctly, the hardest pulls were Monarch Pass and the climb just past the Telluride turn off going to Lizard Head Pass.

What the heck, it is all beautiful country which ever way you go .

One of these days we hope to do Ouray like some of you have.

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.
