Portions of Colorado's border states, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska, and Utah are included to show the relationship between Colorado and its neighbors. A small inset shows Colorado among the other 47 Continental United States.

This elevation map of Colorado illustrates the number of feet or meters the state rises above sea level. As you can see, all of Colorado resides at over 2,000 feet above sea level. The Great Plains cover the eastern 2/5 of the state. The Rocky Mountains run north to south through the central part of the state.

At a mean elevation of 6,800 feet above seal level, Colorado has the highest mean altitude of the 50 states.

Colorado's low point, 3,315 feet above sea level at the Arikaree River in Yuma County, is the highest low point in the nation and is higher than 18 state high points.

The highest point in Colorado, Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet above sea level in Lake County, is also the highest point in the Rocky Mountains and the second highest point in the Continental United States. It's located in the Sawatch Range in the western-central part of the state about 20 miles east of Aspen.
