Million Dollar Highway
All right man, I wanna do a two or three day ride out to Million Dollar Highway and back to Morrison CO. (Denver). I want to do it sometime in the last two weeks of August, first two weekends of September. And I want to start out on a Thursday morning after rush hour, return Friday evening or Saturday.
Million Dollar highway is located between Durango and Ouray. And it is considered one of the most scenic Highways in North America, with lots of cliffs and twisties. Google Earth and Mapquest quote 5.5 hours on a straight shot out 70 past Glenwood Springs. Although 70 West is nice, Im thinking to many towns with cops. I want to choose a more interesting route with less towns and cops. And more twisties and open straight aways!
I would like to stay at one of Colorado's Hot Springs during the trip. I have been to a couple of springs that were cheap $27 to $35 buxx a night, however your potentially sharing a huge room with ten to 15 beds. Might get near same price in a simple Motel.
You wanted a ride for Rockets! now here is your chance.
