Colorado Road Trip 2019 | On the Road to Leadville - Route 24

Route 24 supplies some wonderful views as you travel south from Interstate 70 to Leadville (and even further to Beuna Vista where we would spend the night in the same Best Western we stayed at 10 years prior on a road trip to the four corners area (i.e. southwest corner of Colorado))

I don't recall what the road is like south of Beuna Vista, but after the night at Best Western, our trail takes us north and east toward Denver and the airport for our flight home.

As is typical for us, this 1 1/2 hour drive took us all day.
Leadville is about half way down the blue route, where the grey route joins it.

At this point we're on the outskirts of Leadville.
We pulled off the road and had this view as we ate our lunch.
It could not have been more magnificent.
