unforgettable roads in the world.
This list should provide great inspiration and bucket list fodder for those

1. U.S. Route 550 'The Million Dollar Highway', Colorado
U.S. Route 550 is a spur of U.S. Highway 50 that runs from Bernalillo, New
Mexico to Montrose, Colorado in the western United States. The section from
Silverton to Ouray is frequently called the Million Dollar Highway. This stretch
through the gorge is challenging and potentially hazardous to drive; it is
characterized by steep cliffs, narrow lanes, and a lack of guardrails; the
ascent of Red Mountain Pass is marked with a number of hairpin curves used to
gain elevation, and again, narrow lanes for traffic—many cut directly into the
sides of mountains.
