I've tightened up my itinerary since the last time I posted here. Here it is and is it doable?
Depart DE on Sept 3
Arrive Estes Park Sept 6
Sept 7 visit Red Rocks and Boulder
Sept 8 leave Estes Park and drive to I-70 via Trail Ridge Road thru RMNP
Take I-70 to Crawford and Black Canyon of the Gunnison State Park
Use San Juan Parkway to get to Mesa Verde Natl Park
Durango and Silverton to 4 wheel drive road to Lake City
Lake City to Canon City and Royal Gorge
Canon City to Colorado Springs and Pike's Peak
Depart CO thru Amarillo, OK City, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville, Charlottesville to DE on Sept 18.
Whew! Can we get to all these things in CO in our time frame?
Thanks for any and all input!
