In mid Sept we will be taking the train from Durango to Silverton. We were then planning to rent a car and continue on to Ouray along the Million Dollar Highway but I have not been able to locate a rental car company in Silverton. I guess that has turned out to be a blessing in disguise as I would not have discovered the option to rent a jeep and travel the jeep roads to Ouray.
It doesn't seem that far and should be easily driven in an afternoon. Is that a correct assumption? Also, what are some of the sights to stop for along the way?
Once in Ouray, the hot springs and Box Canyon Falls seem to be the sights not to be missed. How much time should be allowed to enjoy these?
Lastly, is there a way to Bridal Veils Falls that doesn't require one to be an expert jeep driver? (other than the Highway)
Thanks for any help on these questions.
