Rocky Mountains

Rocky Mountains Travel Guide

Colorado's beautiful landscape, and its lifestyle, is dominated by mountains, and much of northwest Colorado is covered by the world-renowned Rocky Mountains that are famous for their scenery, as well as for their skiing, snowboarding and hiking opportunities. The Rocky Mountains feature many popular ski resorts like Vail, Aspen and Breckenridge, where winter and summer activities abound.

The magnificent scenery of Pikes Peak Country and the Garden of the Gods can be explored from Colorado Springs, while the alpine meadows and rugged cliffs around the peaks known as Maroon Bells, near Aspen, contribute to make the area one of the most photographed spots in Colorado, and indeed the US. One of the state's most popular attractions is the spectacular Rocky Mountain National Park with its alpine lakes, snow encrusted peaks, meadows and waterfalls that are the some of the most recognisable images of Colorado's natural beauty. Fossils can be sought out at Dinosaur National Monument, in an area that also lures travellers with white water rafting and hiking trails. For a taste of the fascinating ancient culture of the region, the Mesa Verde National Park offers visitors the chance to explore some of the most remarkable archaeological sites in the country.
