Colorado Summits and Peaks Captured by Artists

Colorado is known for its magnificent wilderness. From the classic “Colorado 14ers” to the Rocky Mountain Range and the Elk Mountain Range. Colorado summits and peaks are iconic to its landscape.

Colorado Summits, Inspired Exploration

Explore Independence Pass — the Continental Divide corridor between Aspen and Leadville — or admire Mount Sopris from Carbondale or the Crystal Valley. Take in the views from Aspen Snowmass of Snowmass Peak. Stand at vistas to see Pyramid Peak, Mount Hayden, Maroon Bells, or Seven Castles. Take a road trip up to our neighbors in Wyoming for awe-inspiring views of the Grand Teton Range. There are infinite moments to take ones breath away.

Art in the Heart of the Rockies

Colorado inspires the arts, and artists such as Leon Loughridge, Linda Lillegraven, Sean Wallis, Simon Winegar, Dan Young, Kate Starling, Nathan Solano, Peter Campbell, Joel Ostlind, and Tom Korologos find themselves with no shortage of inspiration.
