We are 4 adults in our early 60s that enjoy hiking(but not too strenuous) outdoors activities, wildlife, finding good local hangouts for a drink and dinner taking in all the beautiful scenery.
That being said we will be arriving in Denver in mid Sept 2018. We will rent a car at airport. We do not mind driving and enjoy scenic routes rather than hwy!! The temporary route that I am looking at is as follows:
On to Telluride with a stop in Black Canyon NP and Montrose for lunch staying overnight in Telluride.
on to Durango.. overnight. (would like to fit in four corners monument if that is not too much)
Drive to Denver to catch flight.
Obviously this is a very rough draft. I really wanted to know if this is doable. We will fly in on a Thursday and fly out on a Thursday. I will try to book first flight into Denver and late afternoon out of Denver. I am open to suggestions in each of these places or new suggestions if you think there are other cities that I should include and eliminate others. Once I have a route planned I can then focus on all the details and become a little more organized. Thank you.
