I've never been to Colorado and need your recommendations on national parks/forests/drives. Here is what I'm thinking so far:
Gunnison National Forest and/or San Juan National Forest. Pick one and not both? What about that cool "Million Dollar Drive"? Will that drive allow me to see lots of things?
I'll be driving from Nebraska with a dog. Since most national parks don't take dogs, I'm opting for the national forests (I can't go to Mesa Verde or Rocky Mountain Ntl. Park). What's the best route coming into Colorado from the Northeast?
