My fiance and I are getting married the first weekend in October and will be spending our honeymoon in Ouray. Instead of flying directly into Montrose we found it would be cheaper to fly in to Denver and drive the 6 hours to Ouray (plus we have friends in Denver).
I have never actually been to Ouray, but my fiance's grandparents have had a cabin there for quite some time. As the date for our trip (October 8th - 11th) approaches I have started looking in to rental cars and such and began to wonder if weather will be an issue. Can anyone give any advice on if we will hit any type of bad weather (snow?) driving from Denver to Ouray?
We had also planned on spending a day/night at the Mesa Verde National Park - I've read wonderful things about the drive from Ouray to the park, is that another drive we may struggle with (conditions wise)?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much
