<<<certainly some will enjoy this ride?>>>

I certainly did.....that is some beautiful scenery.

And I had no idea that a bus would handle so well at those speeds......and on wet pavement no less !

'Someone' talked to the owner of the tour bus company
'Someone' called the number on bus and the place was closed for Sunday, but had a recorded message with an after hours number...

I've done the million dollar highway from Durango to Ouray on my motorcycle. One of the most amazing mountain highways ever, second (in my opinion) only to "Going to the sun road" in glacier national park. Your video is really making me want to head to Durango this week and never come back...

Love that stretch of road. Would make for a fun run with 20 or 30 skoolies.

so..... what is keeping you from doing that? I did it last year and have not ONE single regret!

Oh, and speaking of going to the sun ( you cannot do that in a skollie unless is less than 18 feet)
