If you ever travel to Durango, Colorado, remember to travel the San Juan Skyway. Although an experienced driver must complete this (curves and elevation changes), the views are outstanding within the Durango-Silverton stretch of the road. In spring the waterfalls and flowers blooming is a true masterpiece. Although in summer the views are amazing, traffic is usually backed up or slow. Fall is the most spectacular season with the fall colors even turning aspen trees bright red making the trees appear like they are on fire. Sadly the road is most the time closed in winter due to heavy snow or avalanches. Every time a relative comes down to Durango, I recommend this trip more than most the activities in Durango.
