Colorado has a very diverse landscape. It includes mountains, forests, mesas, high plains, canyons, plateaus, deserts, and rivers.
Colorado is the tallest state in North America. It is in the Rocky Mountain region. This mountainous state has 54 peaks alone. Rugged hilly landscapes give way to rolling plains from east to west. Also, a diverse climate is responsible for the variety of scenery scattered throughout this state.
The Front Range is in the extreme north. It is home to Rocky Mountain National Park. Just south of here is the both vibrant and populous capital city of Denver. Further south, you’ll encounter the Alpine Valleys and the San Juan Mountains which boast many ski resorts.
