|The 232 mile San Juan Mountains Skyway loop is one of the most scenic drives in America and spans elevations from 6,200 feet outside of Durango to 11,008 feet at Red Mountain Pass. On our drive today we took in beautiful views of alpine forests, scenic mountains, cattle ranges and the towns of Silverton, Ouray and Telluride. Telluride’s real estate is a bit pricey – with a 1200 sq. ft. plain looking house listing for $799,000. Telluride has a celebrity status – it is rumored that such big names as Oprah have a house there. The dogs had a great time for the two days they stayed at the “daycare”, but today they traveled the San Juan Loop with us.
