    • How should I plan short Colorado Trip

      Colorado Nov 5, 2014 at 10:18 PM

      Hi,
      I am based in Los Angeles. In third week of December, I will be covering some part of AZ, New Mexico (Tucson, White Sands, Santa Fe, Taos) and planning for further route. I know Trail Ridge Road will be closed irrespective of good or bad weather. Same may be true for Rocky Mountain.
      I am thinking of taking route LA-Tucson-White Sands-Santa Fe-Taos-Colorado part-back to LA after covering on-route places. I have already Zion, Bryce, Moab, Arches/Canyonlands in my past trips. I was going through beautiful places in Colorado and found so many beautiful places, I am getting confused. We will drive rental car. We are not into skiing and long hikes, but mostly interested in scenic, photographic and beautiful places. I have few more questions :-
      1- If White Sands NM is comparable to Great Sands, should I skip whole lower loop of Tucson-White Sands ? any comparison, if anybody been to both places.
      2- Which places will not be accessible, in above mentioned places ? (I hope, I was able to mention best places)
      3- I will leave Santa Fe (or Taos) on 27-Dec morning and have to reach Grand Canyon on evening of 31-Dec. How should I plan these days between both places ?
      4- There are various routes from Santa Fe to Colorado Springs (25 and other one is via Taos-84-64-160-25, other one is via Million Dollar Hwy but out of way). Which route should I take ? I would keep a plan-B route in mind, because weather can be worse on few roads.
      I am facing hard time, how should I plan my days, place to visit and stay between 27-Dec and 31-Dec.
      Please suggest.

    • Access to Maroon Bells during shutdown

      by itstima Online Now Oct 6, 2013 at 8:47 PM

      My girlfriend and I will be in Aspen later this week for 2-3 days. We hope to see the Maroon Bells and the Maroon Bells Lake. Bit confused on what we do and do not have access to within the park/roads due to the shutdown. Would really appreciate help from a local or someone having been there recently.

      Also, as the White River National Forest is shut, could you suggest places we can tent camp or rent out really low cost cabins?

      Thanks.

      Questions about Aspen

      by beatchfre Online Now Oct 16, 2007 at 3:39 PM

      Hi guys,

      I live in Santa Fe, NM and my parents will be visiting me from Scotland in a few weeks. I'd like to take them on a wee road trip up to Colorado - the places that I'm looking at are Aspen, Telluride, and Ouray. I've been to Denver, Pueblo, Colorado Springs, and Durango so I'm kinda familiar with the roads... and the amount of deer/elk that I can expect to run in front of me :-)

      My old man really wants to go to Aspen - I think he's watched too many movies and expects to bump into Hollywood's A-list. None of us ski! Well, I can ski, but I can't stop. We're not looking for fancy museums or art galleries - just nice pictureseque towns, with some local shops, decent bars with live music, not too expensive*. What would be your order of preference for our trip...

      TRIP 1: Drive from Santa Fe->Silverton->Ouray->Telluride->Santa Fe (2 or 3 nights).
      TRIP 2: Drive from Santa Fe to Aspen (2/3 nights).

      If TRIP is the preference would you recommend spending both nights in Telluride, both nights in Ouray, or one in each?

      Thanks in advance for any replies :-)

      Cheers,
      Lee

      * by expensive, I mean I don't want to spend more that200 on a hotel room and50 a head for a meal.

      Can anyone share information regarding the free skier shuttle between Snowmass and Aspen. I think I want to ski Snowmass, but a buddy may want to ski Aspen Mountain in town. I thought maybe he could take the shuttle from Snowmass to town. I know there is a shuttle system, but I guess my main question is where to you pick up the bus from? Thanks.

      My husband & I want to plan a trip to Aspen for our 28th wedding anniversary, which is March 24, 2007. We need suggestions about where to stay, etc., as we have NO IDEA about anything!! We'll be flying from NC. Living in the south & loving cold weather & SNOW, I've always dreamed of going somewhere, sitting in a lodge by a nice, warm fireplace & seeing nothing but snow!! I've searched for places to stay, but would really like advice from someone who knows. We don't ski, but would probably consider tubing. Are all places to stay in the town of Aspen, then you go up the mountain to find the lodge setting I've mentioned above? Thanks for any suggestions!

      Hi This will be my first visit to ASPEN. I will reach there in Saturday at around 12 pm and leave next day at 2 pm. I am planning to stay in Snowmass Village. Can anyone suggest how can I make most from the trip. I am going there to see the fall color and the beautiful lake and mountains. But not for snow or ski. Please suggest the places that I should do to in this 1 day time. I will have a car of my own. I will be coming from Denver Metro. Hope that's a four hour drive in Nissan Altima? How will the season during 2nd and 3rd october. Can I catch the fall color then? If you please mention pointwise the places I should plan one after another that will help me a lot. I like photography. So nice scenic spots is what I am looking for. Not much hiking as I will have my family with me. Please suggest the best suited plan. Thanks AS
