San Juan Mountains - San Juan Skyway

Hwy 550 south of Ouray

Hwy's 550 and 145 build the San Juan Skyway. Opportunities for sightseeing and hiking are abundant along this scenic drive.

Jeeping is also very popular in the San Juans. Guided tours are available at Ouray and other towns. Renting a jeep has been quite difficult for people without an american drivers licence. Silver Summit Rental in Silverton offered jeeps and the necessary insurance.
