Southwest Colorado has a dramatic landscape where blue crags jut between grassy meadows and plunge down to white rapids. Mesas open to create deep canyons. From biking, hiking and running to climbing, flying and boating, people living in the towns of southwest Colorado are always on the move. Ghost towns and abandoned mines are scattered within the San Juan Mountains while on the high flats of the Colorado Plateau, you’ll find ancient ruins.

The average winter temperature is a high of 46 and a low of 11. The average summer temperature is a high of 78 and a low of 44.

LARGEST CITY: Durango. Population of 15,000.

FUN FACT: According to the official story, Telluride is named for Tellurium, a mineral extracted in great quantities from the surrounding hills during prospecting days. The unofficial (but more popular) version is that the many desperadoes who hid out in this inapproachable box canyon (including Butch Cassidy) had a code phrase for the place: "To Hell You Ride."
