We just spent a week in Creede at the Mountain Views RV Resort - wonderful place, great people. We LOVE Creede - the Creede Repertory Theater is excellent - went to several plays. Great shopping in all the small businesses in town! DW loves it - so do I.
Be sure to stop at the fudge shop!
The temps are dropping a bit, but you should be fine. Great scenery! The fire you undoubtedly heard about did nothing to diminish the beauty of the area around Creede and South Fork. You can't see the burned area from those locations.
Highway 160 is a piece of cake if you're comfortable in the mountains. It's level for the most part unless you're coming from the west over Wolf Creek Pass - which is how we get there. Slow down, take your time - enjoy!
