We booked our air today too!
Might want to mention what time your flights are for maximum sharing ride info.
We're arriving Monday morning so we can do some stuff the kids might like that isn't orienteering.
Suggestion: every kid should do this: http://www.durangotrain.com/
It's the wrong direction from DEN to LAR, but it's worth it before they get too old to enjoy it as a kid.
I'm flying in on Wednesday 8/29 at 11am, ish. Leaving Monday at 11:30pm.
Fossil: definitely the wrong direction! We were in Durango the last time we went to Colorado & Wyoming, but we don't have the time to get down there this time. My kids *might* like it, or they might turn up their noses.
We'll be in Estes Park & RMNP on Monday and Tuesday instead. We're going to force the kids to hike. ;-)
