Ok, we have friends who spend each summer in Durango, Co.
The first year we flew into Alburqueque and spent most of our time in Durango and the surrounding areas ( Ouray, Silverton, Mesa Verde SP, etc.).
The second year, not wanting to repeat the same trip, we flew into Las Vegas, then hit all the major parks in Utah ending at Moab, UT. We crossed over and stayed a few night in Durango and then the groups of us went to Telluride for a few more nights and then flew out of Grand Junction.
This year we would like to fly into Jackson Hole and head down to Denver (where we have a different friend who lives there) hit the surrounding areas and work our way down to Durango.
This would all take place mid August and we have 10-14 days to do it.
We are very interested in outdoor activities like hiking and biking. We are marathoners and tend to do most of the hikes in half the normal time ( just to give everyone a feel for how much time we might need).
Any suggestions?? Is this a doable trip??
Everything I see on the web are trips originating in Denver and doing a loop. I dont think we have time to do a loop type trip. Trying to max activities and beauty in a about 2weeks.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
