State description

The state of Colorado (an area of 269.8 thousand square kilometers) is located in the Rocky Mountains, north of New Mexico. It is part of the group of so-called “mountain States”. The territory of the” State of the Century ” almost entirely lies in a mountainous area – from north to south along its entire length stretch the ridges of the Rocky Mountains (Advanced Ridge, Sangre de Cristo, San Juan, etc., the highest point is Mount Elbert, 4399 m), from which many rivers originate (North Platte, South Platte, Arkansas, Rio Grande del Norte, San Juan, Colorado, Yampa, etc.). This is the highest part of the Rocky Mountains-there are about 550 peaks, whose height is more than 4000 meters, and 54 mountains exceed 4270 meters, while the territory of the state never falls below 1000 meters above sea level (the lowest point is 1010 m, located in the valley of the Arikaree River). A strip of elevated Colorado eastern, or High, plains (altitude from 1010 to 2000 m) stretches to the east of the chain of mountains, and the vast Colorado plateau begins to the west, extending into the territory of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico (an area of 337 thousand square kilometers). The slopes of the mountains on the eastern side are mostly covered with coniferous forests, at the foot – steppes. The western slopes and plateaus are drier – there are more semi-deserts and wastelands, and dense forests often replace thickets of dry shrubs and woodlands. \

The weather in Colorado is typical for temperate mountain areas – summers are long and warm, in winter the temperature often drops to zero and below, and snow falls in the mountains. However, the state is characterized by very high variability of the weather – during one day, the temperature can change by 15-20°C, a sudden storm or snow storm can fly, or a long dry period can also be abruptly replaced by heavy rains.

The capital and largest city of Colorado, Denver, was founded on November 22, 1858, as a gold-mining settlement. Metropolis (the area of 401,2 sq km), which the Americans call “The Mile-High City” is approximately 1609 meters above sea level, between the Eastern slopes of the Advanced range and High plains. A major regional center of culture and commerce and just a fairly colorful city, Denver is easily recognizable by its clear geometric grid of streets and towering skyscrapers of the business center and the peaks of the nearby Rocky Mountains, rising like a wall all over the horizon.
