I would definitely road trip it and not return to the same place.


I already have a place booked in GJ. That's not changing.

Driving out west is fun for a day or two, but its going to get old very quick.



Doesn't get old to me. I love it. To each his own.

It also gives you a lot less time to mope around the small towns around there.


ehh, I don't have really care to spend a lot of time moping around small towns.


I get what you are all saying, but I think that basing in GJ will be just fine considering where we are trying to go.

You'll have a great time no matter where you stay out there.

The drive through Montrose and Delta is flat with farmland, that will be the bulk of your drive from San Juans and Black Canyon. Not great but could be worse.

You are about 3 hrs to Aspen if that floats your boat.

Highly recommend Colorado Monument in GJ.

Kannah Creek Brewing in GJ is good and Hot Tomato Pizza in Fruita is the second best pizza in the state, the best is Brown Dog in Telluride.

I was in Grand Junction last week for work. My only advice is to spend as little time in Grand Junction as possible.

I've never been to Aspen, so that might happen.

Definitely going to check that out.

Awesome, thanks for the recs.

I suppose that if I could re-plan, I'd do it differently, and stay in different places each night, but I'm mainly going out there to take my parents, and their minds will be blown either way.

Grand Junction isn't that bad. But to your point, we won't be spending a ton of day time in GJ.

Glenwood Springs is on the way along I-70. They have the hot springs pool and the Hanging Lake hike.

I've been on the single person roller coaster thing they have on the mountain, but have never been to hanging lakes. Will keep that option open.

re: Hanging Lake

Just keep in mind they have implemented a permit system.

Hot Tomato is great.

Also, if you’re grabbing lunch/dinner in GJ, I recommend the burger at bin 707 foodbar.
