Padinago's trip to the USA in 2008

Day 16 - From Grand Junction to Denver, CO

We slowly reach the end of our trip and today we drive back to Denver.

On our way we drive through mountains and beautiful valleys, lakes and rivers where we often stop. We drive on a highway which is surrounded by beautiful mountains varied with valleys and lakes. We see a lot of skiing resorts.

We stop at the Giberson Bay in the White River National Forest for a nice walk along the lake.

We also drive through Silverthorne with a gigantic shopping mall “Outlets at Silverthorne”, in fact just a little town with only shops, divided in 4 zones (blue, green, yellow, red). It is too big to see everything but we spend a few hours there for shopping.

In the evening we reach again our point of departure, the Red Lion Hotel in Denver. We have dinner at the hotel and go to bed.

Daytrip approx. 420 km
