Help needed for thanksgiving trip (Phoenix-Colorado Springs)

Hi,

We live in Phoenix, and are driving to Colorado Springs over the thanksgiving weekend (Nov 22 evening - Nov 26).

Does anyone have suggestions for a good itinerary. We are thinking of covering Telluride, Caolorado Springs and other attractions on the way.

Thanks!

If you plan to visit Telluride, I would recommend Ouray as well. It is not far from Telluride and well worth the stop. Very quaint and beautiful.

Yes, will also drive to Ouray on the way to Colorado Springs.

Thanks.

Are there other places worth visiting along the way, or before Telluride?

As you want to visit Telluride you will need to go to Montrose to connect with a major road over the mountains to Colorado Springs. I would recommend the Black Canyon of the Gunnison for a good side trip out of Montrose.
