I-70 West toward Grand Junction

I-70 West - Note eastbound below. Following Colorado River

Today, we moved from Salida, CO to Breckenridge, CO which is just a short drive of 80 miles if you take the short route which we did. It sounds easy, however, in a 45 foot motorhome towing a car, the story gets a little complicated. The route took us to Fairplay, CO and then taking route 9 north to Breckenridge, CO. That requires climbing a mountain to the summit of Hoosier Pass which is at 11,539 feet. And then it is an 8 degree descent downhill for four miles with a bunch of hairpin turns thrown in for good measure.
