You must really enjoy long, killer climbs and are already adapted to the altitudes. Might carry a pair of spare brake pads
Del Norte to Durango is all I've ridden of your route. Don't recall anything to see or do that won't be obvious. The 10 mile climb to Wolf Creek Pass from Pagosa Springs is a 7% grade, from the east 6%. You could go over to here
and do a journal search of places on the route. There will be a lot of info.
If a coal fired train ride thru spectacular scenery is of interest, do that in Durango. Be careful not to get cinders in your eye.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
