Is Buckskin Joes still open? I was recently told it closed? I was hoping to take my children there when we come to Colorado! I went there as a child and loved it!
We are getting up very early to drive from Durango to Canon City in June. We have a choice of driving 4.75 hours going east on 160 through Pagosa Springs and Wolf Creek Pass,then north on 285 and east on 50. The other choice which takes 6 hours would be to go north on 550 along the San Juan Skyway to Montrose, and then going east on 50. I have heard that San Juan Skyway is a pretty drive, but we are limited on our time. We want to spend the afternoon at Royal Gorge, the evening at Seven Falls and the next two days at Colorado Springs. Is it worth taking the extra 1.25 hours to go on the Million Dollar Highway? I imagine the other way has some pretty scenery too. ?
How is the white-water rafting this summer?
