The Sky’s the Limit for Campers Exploring the High Country
Here a party has pitched tents and tethered pack animals among the alpine firs of the Gore Range, west of Denver, 11,000 feet above the sea. In the High Country are 17 national forests. Some 50 peaks rise above 14,000 feet ; hundreds of others exceed 10,000 feet. Climbing is a year-round sport.
