4 weeks time to Colorado

Good afternoon,

we are still in Arches NP (Utah) and drive on Sunday to Colorado. First stop is Cortez, then Silverton, where we visit friends.

Then we have 4 weeks to Colorado. What can you recommend? Which campgrounds and what should we watch an do on? Thank you.

Walter

Since you have a Jeep Liberty plan to spend a chunk of time in Silverton. The trails are awesome! We've done them all in our Liberty except Black Bear.

We also enjoy soaking at Pagosa Springs. They have clean concrete pools of varying temperatures overlooking the river. We can easily spend a morning there.

Buena Vista is another area we like.

Your month will go fast in Colorado!

Molas Lake south of Silverton is beautiful but it has become very expensive since they redid it.

If you can be in Silverton for July 4 parade and fireworks it is well worth attending both. The tiny frontier mining town does an awesome job on both and the parade is fun to watch.

So jealous you are in CO., and I in Texas heat & humidity. For me it would be Ouray(Switzerland of America), and driving the trails.

While in the Cortez area you might try the Dolores River Campground.
Small town with a very nice family owned park on the river with plenty of attractions nearby. Enjoy your trip

We are spending 4 nights on the Delores river, 2 nights in Telluride (45th wedding) in a lodge, 3 nights at Molis lake then 3 nights north of Durango. We have done this trip 3 different times.

SAYING WITH A SHOUT. Believe it or not. A motorhome is not a sports car and the climb into Silverton is not a California freeway. You are not going to fly up or down those grades SO just plan on allowing some extra time and enjoy the ride. Well maybe not the driver, cause he/she should be watching the road, the speed demons, the motorcycles and the bicycles. To make up for the steepness and the narrowness there are some beautiful pull off along the . Stop and enjoy the view.


Your dollars paid for them


You can not say you were not warned

The drive from Durango to Silverton isn't too bad, its the drive from Silverton to Ouray that gets exciting for some folks.

Like anebb said, just slow down and enjoy to ride. I've been over this road with every conceivable type of vehicle and it just takes time. Stay in the right lane and please pull over at every lookout and enjoy the view...
