Rocky Mountains

The Rocky Mountains cover all of western Colorado. The mountains stretch from Canadian British Columbia to New Mexico. The highest peak is Colorado's Mount Elbert at 14,440 ft. The front range of the rockies rise suddenly and majestically out of the flat American plains of eastern Colorado

The rockies are a playground for skiers, snowmobilers, cross-country snow treks, fishing, boating, hiking, and climbing. Today they abound in wildlife including elk, moose, deer, bear, and smaller animals.
