Colorado | RTX Traveler Magazine Issue 18 | Colorado

RTXTraveler_Issue18_Colorado-CoverColorado is a state of extremes that typifies the mystique, romance, and wide open spaces of the American West. It’s the home of legendary frontiersmen Kit Carson and Doc Holliday, and numerous silver mining operations and gold rushes have taken place here, with fortunes won and lost.  The state contains 222 state wildlife areas, and 75 percent of the country’s land area located above 10,000 feet in elevation is in Colorado. There are 52 “fourteeners” in Colorado- peaks over 14,000 feet tall, and the state contains the highest incorporated city in the U.S. (Leadville, 10,430 feet.) If you want to walk on the highest bridge in the country, look no further than the Royal Gorge Bridge, which crosses 955 feet above the Arkansas River. But it’s not all about the physical wonders of this state, the people are also welcoming, friendly and proud. Join us as we explore two stunning high country destinations in the great state of Colorado!

The golf cart sped along, almost silently gliding over the road in the White River National Forest, the sound of the meaty off road tires gripping the dusty surface and the commands of the driver were all that was heard.
