More Colorado Rockies: Sawatch Range

The Sawatch Range is a massive range filled with massive peaks in the center of the Colorado Rockies, stretching from Vail to Leadville to Buena Vista and Saguache. This range includes Colorado's highest peak, Mt. Elbert, and contains more fourteeners, or 14,000-foot mountains, than any other range in the continental United States. The majority of the Sawatch is covered by the San Isabel National Forest, including four designated wilderness areas: the Holy Cross Wilderness, Mount Massive Wilderness, Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness, and Collegiate Peaks Wilderness.
