The Drive from Denver

ok....so how bad or easy is it? Would be MLK weekend. Any experiences. We're trying to weigh options on flights HDN vs Denver.. We would be getting in around 5PM, so it would be a little sundown time driving.

It's about 4 hours with good conditions. Sunset is about 5:00pm. No way I'd drive up there after dark. Critters in the road and not a smart idea. You won't even get out of the airport for an hour+.
