Northeast Colorado abounds with wide-open grasslands and seas of golden wheat. Locals call it "Colorado's Outback," or "The Other Colorado" in celebration of the area's pioneer traditions and natural beauty. While gold-seekers paraded to Colorado's hills, homesteaders moved onto these prairies and built communities. You will find old emigrant trails, antique buildings and abandoned settlements throughout. Most summer weekends contain a gunfight reenactment, draft-horse pull, an antique carriage parade or heritage festival. Lakes and reservoirs offer many water sports and hunters will discover a variety of game. People are welcoming, friendly and unhurried.

The average winter temperature is a high of 47 and a low of 19. The average summer temperature is a high of 85 and a low of 54.

LARGEST CITY:Sterling. Population of 14,777.

FUN FACT: The Kit Carson County Carousel in Burlington dates back to 1905, making it the oldest wooden merry-go-round in the United States. It is the only wooden carousel in America that still has its original paint.
