Re: Seattle to Denver, best route?
Suggested one-way route....1800 miles in 2.5 days, busy, but you'll have fun. A mix of slab and back roads.......
Slab it from Seattle to Coeur d'Alene
95S thru Moscow to Lewiston (they are harvesting now, its beautiful and memorable in the Palouse about now).
12E over the Lolo Pass
93/75/93S through the Bitterroot etc
slab it east on I84 to I80
East into Wyoming on I80
Get off onto the 414 to Manilla
44/141S to Vernal UT.
40E thru Steamboat Springs to Granby
Thru Rocky Mts NP to Estes Park and Denver.
Its going to be hot to very hot all the way......you need a camelback as you'll be on the bike all day making ground whenever you can.
Some of this is pretty good. Now for the return......
Located: Auckland, New Zealand...
but I left my biking heart along the Scenic Byways of America.....
