Towards the end of August we are flying into Denver - early AM. Thanks to this forum, we will take shuttle to get rental on Quebec Street. We will be driving to Colorado Springs and need to be there by evening but would like to drive around instead of driving straight there. On Saturday we have a wedding & reception so no site seeing that day. On Sunday, hoping to have breakfast with extended family and say goodbye and see Pikes Peak. Not sure how long that will take but then we want to just drive and see countryside rest of Sunday and Monday. Need to be back close to Denver Monday night to fly home on Tuesday. I haven't looked at map yet but have always heard about Aspen, Telluride, etc. I've heard they are just as pretty in summer as winter. Will we be close to any of those towns to drive to.
Thanks for any suggestions.
