Leaving next week for a trip to Buena Vista Colorado. We plan on taking 70 West this time. I have always came in from the South, on previous trips.

I have a couple of questions.

1. I don't see many truck stops between Limon and Colorado Springs. Is there any large ones close to the Springs. I would like to fuel up before hitting the mountains. I have a motor home and will be towing,so I like larger stations.

2. Is there any high elevations climbs, between the Springs and Buena Vista. My topo map isn't very clear. Looks like a valley.


Any information or suggestions are appreciate.

Thanks

Two years ago we went from the Springs up US 24 to Limon. It's a nice route to travel. Lots of places to fill up passing through the Springs crossing I-25.

My map indicates a pass west of Lake George - Wilkerson Pass - indicated to be 9,502'.

Safe miles to ya.

Okrver... You won't have any trouble, especially with your diesel between Colorado Springs and Buena Vista. We go up that way all the time, with our gas coach pulling a toad. It's a gradual, but not overly steep climb once you leave Colorado Springs heading west on Highway 24 to the top of Wilkerson Pass.

There are no truck stops 'per se' between Limon and Colorado Springs. There is a Western Convenience easy in and out on Highway 24 west of Colorado Springs just before you get to Woodland Park. It's on the right side of the highway as you travel west. Usually good prices too.

Have a good trip.
