I'll throw a slight diversion in. While Berthoud Pass (Winter Park route) is spectacular, you might think about following the Colorado River west to Kremmling and then taking the Trough Road (county 1) from 9 over to 131. I find it a wonderful route to follow the early sections of one of America's greatest rivers.
Thanks for the suggestion, but on our first trip to Colorado we took part of that route to Grand Lake and I want to go a different way this time.
