The towering, snow-capped Rocky Mountains pervade the landscape in Colorado, and these mountains the main draw for travelers to this jewel of a Western state. Colorado's finest national parks and wilderness areas preserve the Rockies' rich geography and wildlife. You can't escape the beauty of the Rockies, nor should you: even in cosmopolitan Denver, a weekend in the mountains is only a short drive away. From touring the micro-breweries of the Mile High City, to racing down some fresh powder on an Aspen mountainside, Colorado truly does have something for everyone.
