Red Mountain Pass

UPDATE: Appears the video of Red Mountain Pass in heavy rain has been pulled. Sorry.

When you visit Colorado be sure to drive Hwy 550, Red Mountain Pass.

Hint: Easier on the nerves to drive from Ouray to Silverton.

    1. Worse trip. Silverton to Ouray, night, snowstorm and pulling a 30' stock trailer. Had to be in Grand Junction before midnight. Going that direction you travel the drop off side and it is a loong way down. Only 22 miles and only 12 of it really bad.

  2. Coolio. And crazy. I have driven that pass many o times. Beautiful. That looks a little treacherous with the water.

    1. Yes. Quite possibly the scariest Colorado road open year around. South side of Douglas Pass Hwy 139, gets to me.
