  1. Default Louisville, KY to Telluride, CO

    Hello! We are planning a trip from Louisville to Telluride around July 15 and would love some advice on what route to take. We love nice scenic views and whatnot and would prefer to stay off any interstates. We hope to spend four or five days on the road with plenty of stops. We also plan on staying at campsites every night that it is not raining. So far it looks like US 50 is a pretty solid option, but any other suggestions on roads, campsites, stops, restaurants, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Certainly US-50 is one option, and the drive can be made in five days without using the Interstates (except, perhaps, around urban areas. But it is not the only option. Another, somewhat less obvious, route would have you stay a bit south of US-50, and instead follow US-60 more or less down the Ohio to Cairo, then across the forests of southern Missouri and through the Ozarks. Switch over to US-400 when you enter Kansas. From La Junta, CO take CO-10. US-160 and CO-149 to Telluride. I think that would be a bit more scenic and interesting, but if this is a round trip, you could easily use the above one way, and US-50 the other.

    Thanks AZBuck! It is not a round trip, we are flying back. That sounds like it'd be a more interesting trip.
