Denver to Gunnison,Ouray: route+weather.etc.

Jump to last reply

Planning to fly into Denver late October and drive down to Gunnison ,the Black Canyon and Ouray area on our meandering way to ABQ. From Denver, would we drive via Rt. 50 all the way from Pueblo, or cut down Rt.285 (Fairplay,BuenaVista,Poncha Springs) ?
We understand it gets pretty cold there at night...so should we bring down jackets? Would there be a possibility of snow in the area at that time, or road closures?
What is in Crested Butte (besides skiing)...is this a historic town?
We (hub and I are in early 60's) are also looking for recommendations for places to stay in Gunnison or thereabouts.
