We stumbled onto the San Juan Scenic Byway traveling out of Moab, Utah trying to stay south and warmer as we were attempting to move east towards Denver, Colorado and (what we thought) service for our Sprinter.
We stayed in Cortez, Colorado for a few days then decided to go north out of Cortez and head up towards Telluride, Colorado (neither of us had visited Telluride), stay near Telluride, then make our way around and back towards Durango, Colorado. Only after the fact did I discover we were on the San Juan Scenic Byway and that mainly because a friend mentioned her love of the Byway on Instagram.
We also lucked out because parts of the byway got new snow the day and night before we began our tour. I'm guessing that all the Aspens in the Fall might just rival the beauty of that fresh snow. I suppose we'll have to plan another trip along the Byway.
