We're heading out for Alumafandango pretty soon (maybe this weekend) and so far I've got a rough plan for our route to Denver. We plan to take a fastish route to get to Colorado so we can spend a few days in and around Silverton and Ouray (and the Million Dollar Highway!) before we need to be in Denver. We did this trip with our first Airstream and are excited to do it again (with a blog!).
I see we'll be missing the Hardrockers Holidays (it's this weekend). We happened to be in Silverton during Hardrockers Holidays one time before and it was a blast. However, it looks like we might make the Great Western Rocky Mountain Brass Band Festival the following weekend. Perfect!
Any spots along the way or in the vicinity that you recommend we don't miss? Our rough plan after Denver includes (so far) Mueller State Park and Leadville. We don't have anything more than that planned yet.
