Stunning Highway 550 from Silverton, Colorado to Ouray is affectionately called 'The Million Dollar Highway.' Legend has it that the name Million Dollar Highway comes from the 1920s cost to build the highway at over $1 million a mile. Others claim that the fill dirt used to make the road contains $1 million in gold ore; while still others claim the name stems from the panoramic million-dollar views. Whatever the reason for the name it is one of the most incredibly beautiful scenic routes in the West.
