With one month until the start of Drive 4 Corners, the official schedule and route map for the Colorado caravan has been put together and is ready for distribution! All participants are encouraged to attend as the individual caravans from UT, CO, TX, NM, and AZ officially kick off Drive 4 Corners 2014. Be sure to bring your camera, we will have a large group, possibly more than 35 cars- after all it is all about the Desire to be Driven!
The Colorado/Denver caravan is set for a 300 mile journey that will take about 5-6 hours based on stoppages. It is set to meet Friday August 1st at 9:30am at Park Meadows Mall. The next stopping point is meant to pick up additional members in the caravan at The World Arena in Colorado Springs.
The route combines scenic highway driving 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 heading south from Denver or the mountains along 285 to join up with us the group. 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. This was voted as the consensus #1 route to get to Pagosa Springs by the Drive 4 Corners Team.
D4C volunteers will be at both Park Meadows and Colorado Springs locations. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information if you have caravan questions or concerns.
*Notice: To be part of the caravan, all participants must sign the release waiver for liability reasons before we depart.
