Mountains cover all of western Colorado. The mountains stretch from
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
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.
