Pics were uploaded in order put for some reason scattered all over the place by imageshack so I apologize for that.
Sorry myself. Did not mean to make that sound like a complaint. Really loved looking at your pics!

Jake, pics look awesome.
Sorry couldnt make it to see you guys in Denver. Was really tied up with a presentation early next day.
Glad you guys made it safe home, except for the wheel incident.

But now you might know why I put almost 30k miles a year on my car in these Colorado roads. Just cant think of not driving on those mountain roads every time I get a change.

I've done one per summer for the last ten years. Take 1.5 months for each.
Winter a bad idea.

Looks like a trip you will never forget - and will want to do over and over again - you need a manual transmission for those curvy roads
You saw so much, but you missed even more - good enough reason to do the same thing again, but different. Thanks for sharing

I'd take Route 66. Be a long trip though.

Some interesting things along 66 for sure, but also some long and very tedious slogs. Not for the impatient.
