    Default On a road trip, indecided which way to go from Colorado Springs to Monument Valley

    Hi It's been a while since I posted my last questions but I'm finely on my roadtrip now :D.
    We are just east of Colorado Springs today and we wonder which route that is the best route to take to be able to see the best and as much of the rockies as possible, the next destination is monument valley. Without your help we would just put Monument valley on the gps and drive, but that is probably not the best way to do it.

    Advices from you more experienced guys would be really appreciated.

    Default Three (Good, Better, Best) Choices

    Your GPS very well might take you north to Denver, across the Rockies on I-70 and south on US-191 which would be scenic, but well out of your way. Or it might take you south to Walsenburg and over Wolf Creek Pass on US-160 to the Four Corners, scenic and nit a bad way at all. But for my money, I'd use CO-115 southwest from Colorado Springs to US-50 west through the Black Canyon of the Gunnison and then US-550. the Million Dollar Highway, along the Animas River to Durango, and finally US-160 to US-191 and Monument Valley.
