As I was driving southbound on US 550 from Silverton to Durango, my family and I saw this 10 feet tall pile of rock off to the side of the road. Nothing I had read had described such a thing near Durango. Since there was no northbound traffic, we did a quick deceleration and U-turn and parked in the convenient... More
