Colorado is best known for it’s mountains which are part of the Rocky Mountain range. They have some of the best skiing, hiking, and sight seeing in the world which makes it a great tourist attraction, especially in winter. Many people don’t know however that much of the state is actually quite flat. There’s a good deal of cattle ranching and agriculture that happens on the eastern side of the state.
