Guides to Colorado

The Rocky Mountain state gets its name for the obvious reason: The Rockies, that most splendid of mountain ranges, divides the state neatly and provides a scenic (and practical) backdrop for some of the best outdoor sporting in the world (skiing seems to top the list). Of the country's 80 mountains clocking in over 14,000 feet, Colorado claims 53. Even its cities are nestled snugly among fur-trimmed peaks-they don't call Denver the Mile-High City for nothing.

Colorado State Bird The Location of Colorada

 

Despite this craggy legacy, two-thirds of Colorado-its eastern- and westernmost portions-are comprised of plains and plateaus. The east gets a final swipe from the Great Plains, and the west is part of the vast Colorado Plateau. With this kind of geographic diversity, it shouldn't surprise you to learn that the state is comprised of five separate climate zones which support an equally diverse variety of plant and animal life. And the people? Largely urbanites, concentrated in Denver and Colorado Springs. That leaves plenty of room-and plenty of wide open spaces-for those of you preferring an easier, more rustic life than that afforded by Colorado's metropolitan areas.
