We will travel to Durango via Hwy 285 and Hwy 160. We can decide on a place for lunch maybe Salida or Monte Vista, depending on the time of day. On Saturday we will head north out of Durango on Hwy 550 and stop for breakfast in Silverton. We will then travel to Ouray, Telluride, Delores, Mancos and back to Durango. This is approximately 232 miles with a lot of mountain turns. Our trip home will be back north from Durango to Montrose, Gunnison, Salida and home on 285.
