This past weekend I traveled from the east side of Colo. to the west side, and back. It is possible that I-70 will be reopened by the time you travel, but the fires will still be going, there are 4 large fires in Colo. at this time mostly north of I-70, unless the state starts getting rain, and or snow, the fires will NOT be out. So if and when you travel through Colo., plan to skip I-70 and even plan to skip Hwy 50, and instead either take Hwy. 160 way down south, or go up north to I-80 through WY.
I took Hwy 160 over when I went and brought Hwy. 50 back and the traffic wasn't bad. BUT I traveled early morning on Hwy 50 to miss most of the traffic as I had first hand reports of very heavy and slow traffic from others guys that had traveled Hwy 50 mid day.
Shouldn't have any troubles with eating or motels. Just bring a mask to keep the mask Nazis off your back when you enter "public" places.
