I70 west of Denver is pretty nice - but still an Interstate....

You could try going through Colorado Springs, and upto the mountains via CO highway 24... Now that is pretty. Right past Pikes Peak, etc.

yeah, Denver I70 to 470 loop to 280 west to evergreen, then south to Woodland park, then west on hwy 24 to Beuna Vista, then up towards Leadville but then take off to independence pass to Aspen, then up from there to Glennwood Springs, and west to grand junction and continue west...

I don't know all of the road names, but there are signs. I just drive it and know what it looks like when I get there...

Question rocky mountain roads

hey all, i'm gonna be heading out to the west coast coming from CT in a little less than a week. . . i was wondering anyone had any road/route suggestion in the area. . i.e. whats a fun drive that will also advance us closer to the west coast. also, i'm a photostudent, so i will have my camera in tow as well to document the trip and any especially fine things to look at

we're leaving CT/NY state on sunday the 27th and will have to end up in Seattle by the 2nd of june. not sure where we were planning to cross the rockies yet, any suggestion would be great! thanks alot,
-Lynx

Up by my house is pretty. Lots of nice mountain views. If you want, you can meet me and we'll go up. Lots of spectacular rocky mountain shots you can take.

Later,
Tom

I know this is blasphmy, but since your going to Seattle:

take I90 to Sheridan Wy, Hwy 14 (not alt 14) to Greybull, Cody and Yellowstone. Then 89 through the Tetons, 33 into Idaho to Arco, 93 or 21 to Stanley, on to Boise and I84, then to I82 north to Ellensburg, 97 north to Levenworth, and marvel along 2 into Seattle. For an extra special sidetrip keep on 97 north until you hit 20 and go through North Cascades NP before heading south to Seattle. When your in Seattle, take a side trip to Mt. Rainier - a photo paradise!

Enjoy the Rockies and Cascades, however you go.

Thumbs up

i was doing a lil reaseach on the redwoods today and i came across mt ranier as it mentioned the grove of the patriarchs. i'm also a skier so glaciers for me are heaven, i think we just might have to stop there!

keep those suggestions coming, our route is still open for suggestions and change

edit:
also, i was thinking it might be cool to see some desert out there somewhere too, not exctly the rocky mountains, but maybe someone has a suggestion on that issue as well??
