Where in the Florida Panhandle? We spend the winter months in Carrabelle and the Summer in Washington State. Will be following this post for ideas for our trip back to Florida in the fall.

For us, the most spectacular scenic event was the Jeep road from Ouray to Telluride...or the other way around. We had a little rain, sleet, small hail and some snow*(mid June) - all while we had lunch at an old mining site surrounded by breath taking views. Half hour later, it was back to sunshine and the bluest of skies. If you don't have a four wheel drive, rent one. This is one of those things that should be on that Colorado bucket list.

If we ever find that next MH, we want to spend a whole summer in Colorado. Oh yeah, if you make it to RMNP, be sure to toad travel the Old Fall River Road that leads up to the Alpine Visitor Center. It's a one way, eleven mile dirt road best traveled early before the tours scare the wildlife away.

Ditto on Garden of the Gods in Colo Springs- we actually stayed at GoG rv park (although not next to them )
Rafting right west of Colo Springs was FUN ! pic below
the jeep trails show you some stunning vistas

The durango train was great for the first 2 hours, then we got tired and we were on the last car and able to ride on the platform !
The town of Silverton was a letdown IMHO just from a golfcart/ walking tour..
the bus ride down showed different views.

Pikes Peak is a must see, agree on the Air Force Academy - you can hit a golf ball a MILE on their course next door - I don't think I ever used a driver

I read about that road some place on the internet (maybe here?) and one year we were out there and did the drive. Lots of fun and scenic. Go slow and look carefully.
We love Colorado .

+1 for RMNP
SOOO much to see So little time...

Plan to come back and add Utah to the trip... hit Bryce Canyon and Zion and report back which you liked the best...really many more (Arches...Canyon Lands...) but they are the best in the west IMHO

Everything said is great but no one has mentioned Cortez, just west of Durango.
This is home to Mesa Verde National park. One of the best hands on cliff dwellings one can visit. Go in, tour in climb in old Native American Cliff Dwellings.

Excellent! We visited it a few years ago.
