What an amazing view. What a hybrid impression – Denver, the pulsating city in the foreground, framed by the snow-covered peaks of the Front Range in the background. The Front Range runs in a north-south direction between Casper, Wyoming and Pueblo, Colorado and rises to nearly 10.000 ft over the Great Plains. Longs Peak, Mount Evans and Pikes Peak are the most noteable peaks, visible from the Interstate 25 corridor. The area is a popular spot for mountain biking, hiking, climbing and camping during the warmer months, as well as for skiing and snow-boarding in the winter.
Millions of years ago todays Front Range was the home of ancient mountain ranges, deserts, beaches and even oceans.
