As I mentioned, if you were wanting to do anything except just the scenic drive, the distances involved would not be recommended for what will really be not quite three full days when you count the time it takes to get to and from SW Colorado.
Ok here's some ideas for you. Do you want to stop and visit any National Parks or just drive by them? If you want to see Great Sand Dunes, Black Canyon or Mesa Verde NPs you will have to stop and visit. If you just want to drive, stop, eat and sleep, then here's a plan:
Thur - To Leadville via Hwy 91 due to road closure on Hwy 24). Then down to Buena Vista and Salida. From there down to Del Norte, South Fork and over Wolf Creek Pass to Pagosa and on to Durango. Plan on 6+ hours of driving.
Sun - Glenwood or Aspen to Denver.
