Roger and I started off our road trip by flying into Denver, CO on 5/21/2011. We reserved a "small SUV" similar to a Ford Escape or Toyota RAV 4. Unfortunately, the rental agency did not have any small SUVs, only full sized ones. We ended up with a Chevrolet Traverse AWD. After a quick stop at Bass Pro Shop/ Outdoor World to shop (better selection than the one in Duluth), we made our way to Evergreen CO.
