With retirement schdeuled for the very near future, Marilyn and I are planning a nearly cross country road trip this coming fall. We will be leaving from Western CT traveling through the Southern tier of New York state with our first stop just East of Buffalo to spend a few days with my brother and Sister in-law. After that it will be Westward to Denver with numerous stops along the way. Our route and dates are still to be determined, but here are a few places we hope to get to…
Jane & Andy’s for the September or October op session.
Littleton, CO (Denver suburb) to visit my youngest & his family.
Cumbres & Toltec for one of the fall excursions
Durango & Silverton - This one is a maybe - low on the priority list.
If I’m up for the long drive, Nevada Northern in Ely Nevada
The plan is to break the trip up into 5 or 6 hour travel times broken up with two or more nights at each stop. We will be bringing our dog, so all accommodations will need to be dog friendly. As long as the weather is cool, she is fine sleeping in the car while we explore. Unless we can leave her at my son’s for a few days, I don’t think we can do the 8 hour ride on the C&T.
I’m looking for suggestions on sites (RR or otherwise) to see along the way. I don’t mind deviating from the shortest route in order to visit a location. What might you suggest?
