The United States has 88 mountains that exceed 14,000 feet in elevation, known as “fourteeners.” Colorado is home to 53 of them; the state with the next most is Alaska with only 21. As proud as Coloradans are of their majestic Rocky Mountain peaks it is possible to purchase land in Colorado that is as flat as the bottom of a pair of cross-country skis. The entire eastern third of the state is covered in Great Plains prairie land. But even standing among those amber waves of grain (Katharine Lee Bates wrote “America the Beautiful” standing on Colorado’s Pikes Peak) with no mountains in sight you will still be over a half-mile high in elevation. The lowest point in Colorado, where the Arikaree River flows out of Yuma County into Kansas, is the highest “low point” in the country and higher up than the highest point of 18 states.
The population of the Centennial State – it entered the Union at the 38th state in 1876 – clusters along the Front Range where the Rocky Mountains, a geologically young range, rises dramatically above the surrounding plains. Denver, an old mining camp that grew into the Queen City of the Plains, lies at the heart of the Front Range with the college towns of Boulder and Fort Collins to the north and Pueblo and Colorado Springs to the south. The high plains of Colorado Springs and surrounding El Paso County are one of the hottest markets for undeveloped land in the state with sprawling ranches and open space ideal for horse farms.
West of the Front Range the elevations of the Rocky Mountains are dotted with old mining towns. Aspen is one where the citizenry numbered in the hundreds and abandoned property was widely available. At least it was until the 1950s – today Aspen is a ski resort legend with the most expensive real estate market in the country. Sister resort areas such as Breckinridge, Vail, Steamboat Springs and Telluride in the San Juan Mountains of the southwest are similarly pricey.
Away from the ski lifts affordable hunting and fishing lands can be readily found in most of Colorado’s mountain counties south of I-70 – Chaffee County, Fremont County, Par
