San Juan Skyway -
Telluride - Rico - Ridgway
As highway 550 from Silverton curlicues down to Ouray, it noses through tunnels blasted through solid rock, skirts the remains of old mines, a breezes past waterfalls crashing down from invisible heights.
We spent the night in Ridgway. Dinner was a real treat at the "True Grit" cafe. We ate in front of the same wall that served as a backdrop for John Wayne in his first scene in the movie "True Grit".
