We drove 160 between Walsenburg and South Fork Just yesterday. Good road, no major construction, nice wide shoulders and no scary drop-offs. La Veta pass is a long climb and we had to watch our temperatures, but there's a passing lane all the way up so you can go as slow as you like. Been years since we drove 160 West of South Fork but I looked at the Atlas and didn't see anything too bad, maybe others can fill you in on that section. Make sure and take advantage of the road side farmers markets along the way, the harvest is on and the veggies are fresh. If time allows and you want to stop for an evening, you can take 149 out of South Fork for about 20 miles and end up in Creede Colo. Very pretty area on the Rio Grande River. We just made our first visit, stayed in Mountain Views RV park/Resort, it's one of the nicest parks in this part of the country.
