That's probably best. Southwestern Colorado is boring as hell if the leaves aren't changing. There's nothing to do down there; it's a total yawnfest. In the absence of changing aspens, the terrain is boring and uninspiring. There are no mountains to hike or climb, amazing views, 4WD roads, fishing, canyons, trains, mountain biking, skiing, breweries, restaurants, or tourist destinations anywhere nearby.
Kansas! That's what you want! Kansas is where it's at. There's always something amazingly awesome happening in Kansas. I prefer to go there. Driving I-70 through Kansas is an amazing, life-changing experience, way more enjoyable than 550 from Durango to Ouray. And I love how you can just look out across the unchanging terrain and feel that welling sense of agorophobia. Awesome!
