My work and my wife's work took us to every corner of Colorado and, since she is a Colorado native, we have driven nearly every road and visited nearly every tourist attraction in the state at one time or another. In fact, as a couple we have usually visited those attractions multiple times--before kids, with kids, and as empty nester's--because we are celebrating our 50th anniversary this summer.
Just as one example, my wife remembers picnicking on early 1950's weekends near the construction site of Tunnel #1 in Clear Creek Canyon when they were first replacing the narrow-gauge railroad from Golden to Idaho Springs with US 6. And my first trip to Telluride was in 1960's, when the Idarado Mine and Pandora Mill were still going strong and before a ski area there was even someone's dream.
So, I'll stick to Colorado for blogging, but I might eventually add a Colorado State highways section or blog just to fill in the gaps between US highways. Some of my favorite roads and campgrounds are along CO 145, 133, 149, 135, 125, 14, and the Kebler and Cottonwood Pass county roads. However, the current blog does have some suggestions for camping 10-20 miles off some of those US highways (see suggestions for campsites around Great Sand Dunes NP, Antonito-Chama, Cripple Creek, Gunnison, Mesa Verde, etc.), which obviously requires traveling on a State highway, or even county roads, to get to them.
