With two weeks until the start of Drive 4 Corners, the official schedule and route map for the Denver caravan has been put together and is ready for distribution!
All participants are encouraged to attend as the caravan officially kicks off Drive 4 Corners 2013 — after all it is all about the Desire to be Driven! Be sure to bring your camera, we may have a large group of 30 cars!
The caravan is set to meet Friday August 9th at 9:30am in the lot of JC Penney and Dilliards at Park Meadows Mall (marked by an X on the Map).
Meeting points include Park Meadows Mall south of Denver(depart by 9:45), and the World Arena south of Colorado Springs(depart by 11:00am). This was voted at the consensus #1 route to get to Pagosa Springs by the Drive 4 Corners Team. It combines scenic highway driving down to Colorado Springs with an engaging twisty run through the canyon adjacent to Cañon City (there’s a reason for the name!). The end of Texas Creek and the adjacent canyon road lead us to our final meeting point, Salida, CO.
This will be our main fuel point and bathroom stop. It will also serve as a great location for anybody from the north along 285 to join up with us on the way to the Quality Resort. Departure time from Salida will be 1:30pm (sharp) with the last ~2.5hour leg of the trip to go. Things open up a bit with some scenic views as we drive past The Great Sand Dunes, until we get near Del Norte and merge onto US-160. From here out, no more turn offs are required, and it’s an excellent drive up and back down the Continental Divide to Pagosa Springs.
*Notice: To be part of the caravan, all participants must sign the release waiver for liability reasons before we depart.
