We flew into Denver, Colorado, and rented a car. We stayed a night in Estes Park, then drove through Rockies Mountain National Park, and went down the west side of the Rockies. We stayed a night in Breckenridge and then drove into Santa Fe New Mexico. We stayed right off of Canyon Drive in the art district. When drove back to Denver on the east side of the Rockies. Spent time at Canyon of the Gods and Pikes Peak before ending the trip in Denver. Wonderful road trip, very beautiful.
