En route to FJ Summit 2018 I was able to encounter the Million Dollar Highway that runs between Durango and  Ouray, CO.  I played it just right in that I stopped for a few hours to sleep at an abandoned Casino somewhere in NM and then reached this point just as the sun was coming up.  With 500 foot dropoffs with no guardrail I was glad the sun was up.  I’m not really sure I would want to tackle this for the first time in the dark.  Plus it is so beautiful.
