Any advice on a 5-day itinerary for southwest Colorado?
I've been to SW Colorado several times and am headed back there in July. We're planning to go to Mesa Verde, the Durango & Silverton train, jeeps in Ouray, multiple hot springs here and there, Colorado National Monument and more than a little beer drinking and campfire watching. What do you have in mind?
May I suggest that you take a look at some awesome online tourism guides. One is the new CO Field Guide. It takes into account your interests, budget, days of travel, etc. and will help build an itinerary. https://www.colorado.com/colorado-field-guide
Another one is the state's tourism official web page - https://www.colorado.com/
I understand the reason behind that now. Just wanted to be confident that you didn't think Lakewood was in a different part of the state than it is - that would have bee a tough situation to find yourself in if you had booked lodging. Hope your time with family there is good.
Thanks. Your stops sound like just we have in mind. I'll look at some of the online suggestions.
