Colorado is a state known for its majestic scenery, with the rocky mountains, lakes, rivers, and valleys providing photo ops all across the landscape. Colorado has more 14ers (mountain peaks over 14,000 feet high) than any other state in the nation, with 53. Those range from Sunshine Peak at 14,007 feet to Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet. The 53 14ers in Colorado are spread throughout several mountain ranges, so wherever you are in Colorado you are probably fairly close to one. All the 14ers in Colorado are possible to climb and they range from fairly easy hikes (considering the thin air at that altitude and the fact that you are climbing above timberline for several thousand feet) to very difficult, where you would need technical climbing gear just to make it to the top.
Colorado also boasts four national parks, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Great Sand Dunes, Mesa Verde, and Rocky Mountain.
Colorado also has some great cities to visit, from the larger cities like Denver and Colorado Springs, to lots of great mountain towns.
There is a lot to see and do in Colorado, from camping, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, white water rafting and more in the summer, to skiing and various sports in the winter. Colorado is a beautiful state well worth a visit, and probably more than one.
Ahh Colorado so much to see
The scenery so nice it fills one with glee
Many outdoorsy things to do
If it’s not too cold and you’re not blue
Like going for a fun scenic hike
Or going down a trail on a bike
Maybe skiing if you’re in the snow
Or climbing a mountain, you never know
