We're going to SW Colorado mid-June and will be in Mesa Verde for one night (coming from AZ). The second day I was planning on leaving late afternoon (want to maximize time in Mesa Verde) with the goal of getting to Boulder, CO the next evening. I don't expect to go too far the first evening, and was looking at going to Silverton or Telluride. Which way is better? I was originally thinking Silverton, since the next day I would go over the million $ highway, but the drive to Telluride sounds like it's pretty scenic in its own right, and there's a couple quick things to do there in the evening and next morning before heading out (plus more places to stay?) I'll be travelling with 2 younger children. I know the drive the next day to Boulder will be super long regardless, but we're used to long drives.
