    Default Flying By

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Your basic outline is fine, as long as you are fine with a trip where you'll be seeing most of your sites out of the car window, and don't want to spend that much time exploring an individual area.

    The only thing that personally I would change is the Royal Gorge Bridge. There are so many great things to see in Colorado, and I was very disappointed by that tourist stop. Instead, I'd spend a little more time exploring Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP, which would also be right on your route. I'm also not sure if you've got a compelling reason to visit Telluride in the summer, but I would probably opt to go down to Durango via the Million Dollar Highway. I'd also try to fit in a stop at Mesa Verde NP while you're in the area.
