It’s country so beautiful that it inspired John Denver’s song “Rocky Mountain High,” and the famous line “O beautiful for spacious skies” in America the Beautiful. What’s more, it inspired the exhausted settlers who pushed on from the plains on their rugged trek to “Pike’s Peak or Bust.” All across Colorado, silver, snow-capped mountains burst forth from dense forests, reaching skyward as far as the eye can see. On the ground, looking up at these awesome mountains, you can only wonder what thunderous forces created the stone monoliths. Welcome to Big Mountain Country! This is mountain scenery as good as it gets.
You’ll depart this dramatic region of America knowing you have seen the best.
