The Diversity of Colorado’s Landscape, in Photos
A PATCHWORK of land stitched together by rivers and aspen groves, Colorado consists of an endless network of patterns and textures. Delicate alpine tundra, sparsely vegetated desert, towering sand dunes, steep-faced canyons, and grasslands speckled with buttes — all pieces of a quilt that could stretch over a continent exist within the 104,185 square miles that is Colorado. With this variance, Colorado offers us the opportunity to see incredible spaces only hours from each other.
Colorado has an adventure for everyone and a view for anyone. From skiers to kayakers, ultra runners to whiskey drinkers, you can bet that Colorado has a place for you to land your running shoes or camp chair and take in those picturesque sights that cause people to get outside and feel at home in the great outdoors. For that, I’m taking a moment to praise the beautifully stitched patchwork that is the Colorado landscape and what causes us to say: “Gosh dang, Mother Nature! You’ve done it again.”
