The SWITZERLAND OF AMERICA! Ouray, CO | Red Mountain Pass, Cascade Falls, Black Canyon

I have always wanted to go to Switzerland, I guess this will have to do! Located in Ouray Colorado the Switzerland of America is home to under 1000 people. With beautiful mountains surrounding this small town, it holds tons of things to do like Cascade falls, Box Canyon, and one thing specifically the Red Mountain pass. Known to be one of the deadliest roads in North America, it sure is an adrenaline-packed drive in the winter. Make sure to check out local breweries like Ouray Brewery and stop in to watch ice climbing in the winter!
