With your directions I'm lost..............
From Glenwood Springs I'd head down Rt 82 to Rt 133 on to Delta (more than likely this would require a few days as the stops in Maroon Bells - Marble - Redstone usually takes some time)
Continue to Montrose then on down Rt 550 to Ridgway - decision time - the Million Dollar Highway (Rt 550)? or Rt 62 to Telluride and Rt 145 to Cortez? (this will take a week as Telluride - Trout Lake - Dunton - Lizard Head - Rico are all fun then you are just a few miles from Mesa Verde - so why not) From Cortez just follow Rt 160 to Pagosa Springs.
So it seems that I must not be in the right spot as I cannot remember Rt 24 south off I-70 except at Minturn just outside Vail - and I love that drive al the way to Leadville - Buena Vista - Salida to Rt 160 to Pagosa Springs.
Still Rt 91 comes into I-70 at Copper Mountain - to Leadville and is a really Easy drive.
So what did I miss - where are you really? or are you Lost?
Hope this helped you out as all the roads I mentioned are beautiful drives and I enjoyed them in my Coach.
Best of Luck,
