We (family of 4 with 2 older teens) have a trip booked for beginning of July. It is a 9 night, 9 full day trip. All hotels are booked and general itinerary is set. I do have some routing questions I’m hoping you can help me with. These are our 3 longer days of driving……..
Is local rd. 1 or 11 from Kremmling to State bridge a short cut?
#2-Glenwood Springs to Mesa Verde NP (Far View Hotel) via Black Canyon NP
#3-Durango to Colorado Springs via Great Sand Dunes NP
from GSD to Colorado Springs, what is the scenery/car sick ratio between 50 and 24? To save time on this day just take 160 to 25?
Looking for the best combination of route quickness, scenery and roads that will not be too hairy or car sickness prone. I have a good map here.
Thank you for your ideas and input!
