Fun Fact: HIGH COUNTRY is a fancy way Coloradans refer to the "mountains." It's a useful catch phase both weather forecasters and traffic reports use. However, we often say "Headin' to the High Country for a weekend outing." Did you know Colorado has the highest average elevation of any state, as well as the highest low point, making Colorado the "highest state" in the nation! No drugs needed!
Helpful Hint: Altitude Awareness - Please be smart before heading into our high country. Take it easy your first 24 hours to get acclimated, stay hydrated - water is your friend, limit soda and alcohol, wear sunglasses and use sun screen. Remember your pets deserve the same care.
