I love to plan family travel adventures with our four kids. Encouraging time in nature, National Parks travel, backpacking and hiking are my passions and I love to write about them.
We need to make it over to Colorado soon. I forget how beautiful it is!
Wow, you drove an RV on the Million Dollar Highway? I’ve not been on that stretch of road but I’ve heard from trusted friends that it can be absolutely terrifying. I’m not sure I’d be able to keep my eyes open to enjoy any of the ride but it sure looks gorgeous.
We just took it slow and it was fine on the clear day we went. Wouldn’t want to drive it in bad weather though!
It’s one of my favorite things EVER! I’m a novelist, writing historical novels centered in that area during the late 1800s. I’ve spent a fair amount of time up and down that road. It’s truly amazing!
Do you have any books out? Would love to read something set in this area!
The views are amazing but I’m not sure that I could have stayed calm riding along those steep rides in an RV – pretty sure that I would have my eyes closed the entire time! It does sound like an incredible road trip though. Love the train – we went on the White Pass & Yukon route when we were in Alaska and it looks like a similar train.
Oh how I dream of Alaska! It’s on my someday (soon!) list…
Great blog!! I am so happy you linked up – I have enjoyed reading about your Colorado & Utah road trip – we are doing a bit of both of the southern parts of these states this summer.
I hope you continue to link up!
Thanks for the link up! Have a great trip to Colorado and Utah!
LOVE the Silver Dollar Hwy! Such a beautiful drive! Ouray and Silverton have fascinating history if mining interests you. We did do the Durango-Silverton train and it was well worth the money if you can do it. Beautiful train ride and one of the few steam trains left I believe. Did you get to see the Ouray Springs? There was a fabulous glass shop that we stopped at as well and got to watch the owner make his glass creations. Beautiful pictures and I can totally attest to the twisting, curvy road. Beautiful for me to watch, but my husband didn’t get the same opportunity as he drove. Glad you had a fun time there! First time here at your site. Love road trips and want to road trip across the US as well.
I just loved it! Beautiful and definitely a little thrilling! We will have to ride the train next time.
