Central Colorado

From the deserts of Utah, we venture back into Colorado and to cooler climates. We make the transition from arid basin to alpine mountains and back to prairie and grasslands. First, we visit the Colorado National Monument, then Mount Evans, where the highest road in the U.S. was built.
