Early Bird Drive to Independence Pass – For those that are here on Thursday, follow Jeremy for a spirited drive through the aspens to an elevation of 12,095’.   Take a short hike to the vista point to see for miles around.

North Clear Creek Falls Drive – Take an amazing drive on our new favorite road to see the amazing North Clear Creek Waterfall with Jeremy and Becky.  The drive there is so nice, we are going to do it twice!  The roads are so much fun both ways that we couldn’t pass up this opportunity.  Also make sure to see the amazing views from the summit of Slumgullion Pass at an elevation of 11,530’.  This drive will stop for lunch in Lake City.

Tarryall Reservoir Drive – Chris will leisurely lead you on some backroads to see the beautiful Tarryall State Wildlife Area.  A stop at the Tarryall Waterfall is also on the agenda for this drive.  The lunch stop for this drive will be in Divide.

Poncha Springs Loops – Follow Rhonda over the top of Monarch Mountain and as she winds her way through the twisties of Colorado 114 to the top of North Pass, elevation 10,149’.  This will be a fun drive where you can check out the scenery while motoring.

Cottonwood Pass – Motor with Jamie over Cottonwood Pass (elevation 12,126’), and see the incredible views and Taylor Park Reservoir in the far distance.  This drive will take you through some beautiful areas of Colorado!  You will be grabbing lunch in Gunnison before heading back to Salida.

Peace, Love & Alligators – See some very eclectic sites with Chris!  Have you ever heard of a Ziggurat?  You’ll get to see one up close on this drive.  You’ll also get to feed some alligators some Gator Chow at the Colorado Gators Reptile Park.  Lunch will be in Crestone.

Cripple Creek Loop – Justin takes the lead on this drive.  After a lunch stop in Divide, follow the twisty roads around the back side of Pike’s Peak on some very empty, but super fun roads.
