San Juan Mountains, Colorado

The San Juan Mountains, in southwest Colorado, are the most rugged and extensive mountainous region in the state - an ocean of mountains that extends as far as the eye can see. Some notable San Juan towns are Telluride, Ouray, and Ridgway on the northern side, Silverton in the middle, Lake City to the east, and Durango and Pagosa Springs to the south.
