Hi folks from a wet and sorry UK.
We are starting a 4 week trip on 27th Aug with 2 nights in Denver, then 2 nights in Grand Lake before Tetons, Yellowstone etc.
Question - leaving Denver say 9am, should we take the fastest route to Estes Park (I25 ?) if we want to see Bear Lake before driving the trail ridge to Grand Lake - slowly, we want to see the scenery. Or do we have time to take the presumably nicer route via say Nederland, or the in between route via 36? What is the best route anyway? We are staying in the Comfort in dowtown Denver.
Any thoughts welcome.
