    From the looks of it the ride should be scenic. The Million Dollar Highway from Gunison south to Durango might be a must do ride. There's a ton of info on the area using Google.

    If you get north of Denver there is also some awesome roads. Ah heck, the whole dam state is scenic.

    Did that ride a few years ago in early June. Was running hard to beat snow over Monarch Pass. It was raining at our elevation and snow line seemed to be about 800 ft higher. Lots of fun. Big wide road with truck lanes on the uphills and beautiful scenery. As others said you should do the 550 ride down to Durango. Much tougher ride thought with 2 lane road very few if any truck lanes and some severe switchbacks but wow the scenery is phenomenal.

    Default Ride

    Have ridden that hwy twice this summer. Beautiful ride along the Gunnison and just before you get to Montrose (15 miles east) you need to take a hour or two and ride into the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. Very impressive views of a smaller verison of the Grand Canyon. For sure if you ride to Montrose go south through Quray, and Silverton Colorado. I spend most of my free weekends rideing in Colorado and there are not any bad roads except the Interstates.
    Enjoy.
