I am planing a mid may trip thru Colorado , Wyoming and all the way up to Montana.
My idea is to drive straight to Denver in 2-3 days. Change the oil on Denver then past Denver -on I 70- take rt 40 north thru Winter Park all the way to rt 34 and Grand Lake.
My intention is to take the Trail Ridge all the way from Grand Lake to Estes Park then from there will make my way to Laramie thru other small roads and continue my quest north.
My questions are -#1- is the road open at that time ???
-#2- how is the weather at that time -typically ???
-#3- I see a lots of secondary roads on the google and the GPS. Are any of this roads passable by that time or I should stick to the tarmac only ?????
--#4-I am planing on camping most of the time and some cheap motels when is raining. How easy is to find a pet friendly- motel. I have a German pointer and it never leave my side. ????
I did this road 3 years ago on a motorcycle but it was in August and the weather was perfect. I wanted to go farther north but I run out of time and had to track back east.
I really appreciate any input or help you my have. Thank you.
