Besides being the shortest way between SE Colorado and Aspen, it's a really beautiful drive. Luckily, we traversed on a clear, dry day. The road is sometimes barely wide enough for two cars, and guardrails are few and far between; just take it slow and enjoy the view. Definitely get out at the top and enjoy the view from the overlook.
