Colorado is home to many different landscapes and varies geographic features. It offers the snow-laden Rocky Mountains, hundreds of thousands of acres of grassland. Colorado has numerous hot springs across the state and wild rivers perfect for whitewater rafting.
The snowy San Juan mountains offer world class skiing and snow-tubing. There is also a plethora of trails for hiking and biking during the warmer months. Colorado’s varied terrain and well-defined seasons make it an ideal place for adventure at most any time of the year.
