2 weeks in Colorado

Hello, all!!!
DW and I are lucky enough to be planning a two week trip thru Colorado. I was looking for suggestions on where to go, what to see, etc. Will be travelling first two weeks in June 2016. All I know is we will spend two days or so in Estes Park (been there before), and two days or so at Dinosaur National Monument (never been). Any road suggestions as or side trips greatly appreciated!!!
I have been eyeing route 40, looks fairly scenic.
How does it compare to Bighorn Pass in Wyoming???(did that one last year)
Thanks a bunch,

Patrick Stewart

Colorado Wolf Preserve in Divide, CO is awesome and Mueller State Park near there has some great mountain views.

My wife and I spent last summer as camp hosts near Telluride,,,,and fell in love with the San Juan Skyway Loop. Absolutely gorgeous country,,,,,and Telluride is our most favorite of favorite cities. It's near Mesa Verde Natonal Park near Cortez which is worth visiting.

In Colorado Springs be sure to stay at Cheyenne Mountain state park. Great park, good hiking trails, reasonable price, and great view of Colorado Springs.

If you are going to be in southwest Colorado, you may as well hop across the border to Moab, Ut. Arches and Canyon lands National Parks are there. I do second the motion for the Telluride too. Ouray, Silverton, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National park are there. You can ride the Durango to Silverton RR too

If you will be traveling Rt 40 to Dinasaur, you might want to go on over a short distance to Vernal, Utah. It is a beautiful little town. Then take a very scenic ride up Rt 191 to Rt 44 and Flaming Gorge NRA. Very beautiful desert country. We camped in one of the government campgrounds there. (Run by concessioner). We had deer walking by our motor home like we weren't there. The sites had water and electric.
