This is a photograph of US Highway 550 just outside of Ouray in Ouray County, Colorado. The highway runs along a mountainside on the right side of the photo with a few cars driving down it. A steep cliff drops off from the side of the road down to a valley below with a river running through the bottom of it. There is a mountain range in the background covered in trees.
