We had an incredible drive from Aspen and then over Independence Pass. This is one of our favorite Colorado mountain passes! If you are not used to mountain driving this can be a little scary one, but it is safe and well worth it. Just plan to drive slowly, take your time, and don't forget to pull over to let others pass.
Going up the mountain there's a nice stop and a short hike into the Independence ghost town that was fun. And, at the top (approx 12,000 ft) you can get out of the car and hike a short distance through beautiful Alpine tundra for some spectacular views. Restroom facilities are available at the top.
