Moderators Mike and Carol Posted July 3, 2017 Moderators Share Posted July 3, 2017 We are planning a month in Colorado (September). We've spent time in Denver (flew in/out) and drove to Durango once from Arizona. That's the extent of our Colorado experience. The plan is to drive to Colorado Springs (overnighting in Amarillo) for a few days to do Pikes Peak and the other area attractions. Then head up to Rocky Mountain National Park for a week or so. Next we will head down to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to do the canyon, Gunnison area, Crested Butte, etc. It looks like there is a nice campground in the park that is very close to the canyon. Next, we'll head down to Mesa Verde National Park to explore the ruins and see the area sites. Last, we'll head over to Great Sand Dunes National Park for a while before heading south to Santa Fe and then home. We are trying to hit as many National Parks as we can and we can do all four in Colorado plus some national recreation areas. I think we should be alright weather wise but am a little concerned about driving from Rocky Mountain National Park down to Gunnison. Any thoughts or advice on driving, where to go and what to see would be appreciated!
