I am dying to go on a road trip for a few days. I live in Utah and want to go to Colorado Springs. I used to live there and want to see it again. I haven't been back since '79. I want to take a scenic drive to get there. One with all the switchbacks and mountain roads. I don't care about speed limits, I just want to take my time. I don't know the roads there in Colorado, I was 12 in '79. Thanks for any help. I would like the most scenic views I can find. I am an amateur photographer. Thanks again

I would suggest perusing the Colorado Scenic Byways and go from there. All are beautiful drives.

You may be shocked to see the Springs, if you haven't been here since '79. It's doubled in size.

Go over Independence Pass and check out the old mining town of Independence.

Bring your AR. There is a public/free range 6 miles up Rampart Range road from the Garden of the Gods entrance to the road. 6 miles from the pavement.

When you pass through Grand Junction, you're free to shoot at my house. I have a range in the back yard.

Grand Junction through montrose/gunnison/salida/canon is nice.

Another option––-go to the four corners and come up cortez-durango-pagosa springs-alamosa(HWY 160 durango-alamosa). Then head up hwy 117 through salida grab hwy 50 to penrose then 115 to Springs.

I am starting in Ogden. I will be driving my Chevy K1500 4X4. So dirt roads are fine.
