Colorado is the perfect state for a road trip. Beautiful scenery lurks around every turn. Not all these road trips are for the faint of heart. Colorado also hosts some of America's most dangerous roads. Buckle up for the rides of your life.

Travelers be warned. Stretched among Colorado's beauty lay miles upon miles of roads with the potential to take you life.

Slivers of asphalt cling to mountainsides with barely enough room for a subcompact car, let alone the monster RVs peppering the roadways. Blind corners leave even the most experienced drivers wondering what awaits around the bend. Let's not forget the thousand foot drops with nothing between safety and impending doom but a thin slice of gravel -- talk about white knuckles.

If you're brave enough to "risk your life" for beautiful views, you won't be disappointed.
