Jeeping to Historic Town of Tomboy Basin

/ News

A trip to the San Juan Mountains wouldn’t be complete without a jeeping excursion, especially during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. A short 15 minute drive to the nearby town of Ouray, will lead you to the Switzerland of America Jeep Tours. Aptly named, this region of Colorado has more fourteen thousand foot mountains concentrated in one region, than any other area within the Rock Mountains. You might even think you are in the Swiss Alps with the views you’ll encounter during the tour.
