For those in Colorado, I know the drive to and from the mountains on I-70 is a bear. Heading back down towards Denver is always going to bottleneck due to the work on the tunnels after Idaho Springs.
Even if I stay over on Saturday night, I need to pick a time to leave on Sunday. I'd prefer not to finish my day at noon or 1 to "beat the traffic." I'd rather sit around, have dinner, and read a book instead of spending that time going 25 mph.
So, what is the "best" time to leave on a Sunday? 6 PM? 7 PM? 8 PM? (I'm looking at a 2.25 hour drive without traffic.)
