The Jaw-Dropping Mountain Pass In Colorado That’s Home To The World’s Scariest Job

Colorado’s Red Mountain is home to the most dangerous road in America, and a select group of people who risk their lives to maintain it.

Highway 550 gets over 300 inches of snow per year. To make matters worse, the road crosses 70 known avalanche paths…and has almost no guardrails. When winter hits hard, this road can be a deathtrap if it isn’t kept clear of snow and ice. Luckily, a few brave plow drivers are just mad enough to tackle the task.

Let’s hope these avalanche-dodgers stay safely at work for years to come.
