The Quiz: This aspen grove rises along the Last Dollar Road, which leads to which ski resort in southwest Colorado?
B Sun Valley
The Last Dollar Road is an 18-mile route that connects the southwest Colorado towns of Ridgway and Telluride. Once a tiny mining town, Telluride is now famous for its steep ski slopes and film festival. The scenic byway is a rural dirt road, with switchbacks and significant elevation changes, best done in an all-wheel-drive vehicle. Visitors are rewarded with stunning views of mountain peaks and meadows and forests. Fans of Westerns might recognize the setting from the John Wayne movie, ‘True Grit,’ which was filmed here. The road never gets plowed and remains closed in winter and early spring.
The correct answer to this quiz is Telluride.
