First trip to Colorado.. Ever

RE: First trip to Colorado.. Ever
Colorado is an absolutely beautiful state - drivers are pretty laid back, highways have speed limits that reflect the road....and I-70 does have changing speed limits, sometimes it's 70, sometimes 50...pay attention because when the speed limit drops, it's usually because of sharp curves ahead! You can buy local maps that will highlight public land for you to be able to tell when you're nearing or on private property, most private owners do put up signs or fence so you can tell by that too. Give yourself time to acclimate to the altitude before going higher....stick to a day or two in the Denver area, then head up to 7-8,000, wait a day or so if you can, then you should be okay to go to 10-11,000+ without any real issues other than what everyone experiences with thinner air (unless you live at that altitude, then you get used to it). Have fun - good luck!

I forgot, I don't think there are any back roads that will have speed limits at 70-75.....but there are lots of them with speed limits that 'seem' ridiculously slow, 25 mph, until you start hitting the curves on a down grade, then you understand why!
