The Beautiful Scenery of the Colorado Rockies / by JD Andrews

It's hard to believe I grew up in the middle of all this towering beauty, Summit County, Colorado.

When you're a kid, it's just mountains but now when I come back to visit my childhood home, the Mountain's Grandeur is overwhelming.

Summit County is located among the towering peaks of the Colorado Rockies, just on the west side of the Continental Divide and an hour drive West of Denver.

The beautiful mountains of Colorado, including Buffalo mountain on the left.

The elevation ranges from 7,947 to 14,270 feet above sea level.

I always gave tourists a weird look when they would tell me how lucky I was to be growing up in such a beautiful place.

Now when I visit, the mountains seem bigger and the views more stunning.

If you think it looks beautiful now wait until you see it covered in snow!
