Hi Colorado Forum!
I have been planning our family trip to Colorado with the help of all of you; I have read through this forum and used the search function. Thank you all for such wonderful advice thus far.
I am finalizing our itinerary and hope someone can read through and let me know if there are any glaring issues that I haven't seen.
We are a family of 5- kids are 19, 15 and 13. We love to travel to new places and see the sites, light hiking, flishing, photography and National Parks. We have visited 10 National parks and numerous National Monuments over the years.
July 11 Breakfast with a friend and drive to Great Sand Dunes National Park. Stay the night in Great Sand Dunes.
July 12 Drive to Durango. Husband and Son have Fishing plans in the area and the girls and I would like to take the train to Silverton. I was hoping to take the bus to Silverton (930am) and the train return. Is this possible? Was hoping we could do the drive to Durango and get there in time? Stay the night in Durango.
July 13/14 Mesa Verde National Park with stays in the park at night.
July 15 Drive to Black Canyon of the Gunnison NationalGunnison National Park, Stay in Grand Junction. Could we do the Colorado National Monument and BCNP on the same day or will this be too much to squeeze into the day?
July 17-19 RMNP
July 20 Drive to Denver and Flight home.
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance, we are looking forward to our trip!
