Million Dollar Highway
Here's a good picture of The Million Dollar Highway south of the town of Ouray. You can see how the road is just shoved in against the cliffs and has no guard rail. As you can imagine, this road is terrifying to drive in the winter. If you are wondering why there is no guard rail, it's because the Highway department finds it easier to plow the snow off the edge as there is little room elsewhere for it to go.
