I expect to drive from Denver, Colorado to Fort Worth, Texas in the next few weeks - by Mid October at the latest. I would like a few suggestions on interesting places to stop and streach my legs along the way. I would also like to know if anyone has an opinion on the best route to take. I made this drive several years ago taking the interstate south through Colorado Springs into New Mexico and then cutting across to Amarillo then 287 down to Fort Worth.
The difference is that this time I will be driving on company time. I'm not expected to drive it straight through, which means that I have time to stop and rest and see what there is to see. But I still need to keep in mind that the main objective is to get from point A to point B without getting too sidetracked in the process. I will also be driving a U-Haul or towing a trailer so I prefer not to travel through treacherous roads. I know there are some steep passes and things through parts of Colorado and I'm not sure what the weather and road conditions are like this time of year.
Thanks to anyone with recommendations!
