We are flying in to Denver from UK myself and partner 60 & 65 quite fit, but not into long hiking, dont mind short ones i am trying to plan next years Holiday this will be the 3rd driving holiday in the US, we have always had great feedback using Tripadvisor lots of great ideas. I have been looking at the forums and come up with the following itinery. Is this easily possible? could anybody come up with hotels where i have question marks please, i have tried to plan the days so that we have plenty of time to look around the areas we dont like to be rushed it took us 7 hours instead of the 3 it said it too to do scenic highway 12 last year the views were so amazing i think we stopped at nearly all of them so i dont want to pack the days too much and if we find we have time to spare we can see other attractions in the area.
I am going to post on all relevant forums. any suggestions welcome.
