Colorado rt 160

We are traveling west with our new 24c Chateau in a couple of weeks and think we will take 70 west into Colorado and then south west on 24 to Colorado Springs. From there we are going south to Walsenburg where we thought we would pick up 160 west to Cortez and then on sw to Flagstaff.

Anyone familiar with this route that can offer some advise on road conditions. DW does not care for those narrow highways with steep banks on either side so we are concerned having heard stories about the mountain terrain in CO.

RT 160

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.
