I am planning on driving from Denver Convention center car rental location to Garden of the Gods leaving around noon and then driving back the following day to the Denver airport.
I don't mind driving if the roads are well-marked and the traffic is not heavy.
What are the roads like, challenging or something a nervous-nelly can handle?
My alternative is to take a grayhound bus tour but I prefer not to.
Also, I'm visiting around August 20, will it be brutally hot and crowded?
