ROCKY MOUNTAIN H.O.G.® RALLY
One of the most spectacular things in Durango is the winding US highway 550 which is also known as The Million Dollar Highway. Part of the San Juan Skyway, this highway was built in the late 1880's, and it is one of the most spectacular drives in the USA. The Million Dollar Highway section connects Ouray and Silverton and is lined with many small adventure towns and ghost mining villages. You can also visit Mesa Verde National Monument where the Ancestral Puebloan people lived 1,400 year ago. The cliff dwellings are amazing! Visitors can still board the historic 1880s Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad for a 45-mile trip through the majestic San Juans to the old town of Silverton.
