Alabama to Colorado

Planning July trip to northern Colorado via St Louis and Kansas City. I think I want to go into CO to Grand Lake from Laramie in order to avoid Denver. Is anyone familiar with the roads from Laramie to Granby?

We are planning on 5 days to get there, driving 4-5 hours per day. If anyone is familiar with this route please fill me this in. Ive never towed anything cross country. Or if you have suggestions for trip planning software/apps, Im all ears.

Bama to Col

Through Denver on I-70 was not a problem last Sept. If you decide to go north on I-25 that exits 70 just at of Denver, BE AWARE, there is a toll road a little further east with not much notice before you are at or on the exit and no price info that we saw. Received a bill a few weeks later for about $40.00. I will not do that again. Happy travels, Your neighbor down the road in Pell City.

Sounds like a fun trip. If you want suggestions on camping St. Louis to KC, let me know.

Thank you. We are not planning on much exploring until we get to Cheyenne. Our stop between St Louis and KC is at Great Escape RV & Camp Resort in Higginsville. I read a few reviews and made a WAG. I tried to pick places that would put us at about 6 hours driving according to the mapping software. But if you have something better in that area let me know. Thanks.

Yup - been there a few years. Its the toll road to get to the airport faster. E-470 is the label...

Missouri has done an excellent job of restoring both Route 66 and the attractions along the route.

Thanks for the info. We may try that on the way back home. We're in CO now.
