Is this itenerary reasonable for a road trip . I would like to have a few hours per day for stopping and activities:
Fly into Denver Wednesday evening , pick up rental car and drive to Boulder or Estes Park. On Thur morning take the drive through Rocky Mountain Nat Park and then on to Grand Junction for the night. Friday drive to Mesa Verda park stopping in Telluride on the way. Saturday drive from Mesa Verda to Montrose via Durnago and the Skyway. Sunday drive from Montrose back to Denver via Gunnison. Monday morning catch a flight back home out of Denver.
I was looking to do this over the labor day weekend. Will the traffic be a lot worse then as I could postpone it a month but really prefer not to.Edited: 18 July 2010, 19:54
