is a state located in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States of
America. Colorado may also be considered to be a part of the Western and
Southwestern regions of the United States. The United States Census
Bureau estimates that the state population was 4,861,515 in 2007, a
13.03% increase since the U.S. Census 2000.[5] Denver is the capital as
well as the most populous city of Colorado. Citizens of Colorado are
known as Coloradans.


The State of Colorado is defined as the geoellipsoidal rectangle that
stretches from 37N to 41N latitude and from 10203'W to 10903'W
longitude (25W to 32W from the Washington Meridian).[6] Colorado,
Wyoming, and Utah are the only three U.S. states that have only lines of
latitude and longitude for boundaries and that have no natural borders.
When government surveyors established the border markers for the
Territory of Colorado, minor surveying errors created several small
kinks along the borders, most notably along the border with the
Territory of Utah. The surveyors' benchmarks, once agreed upon by the
interested parties, became the legal boundaries for the Colorado

The summit of Mount Elbert at 14,440feet (4,401m) elevation in Lake
County is the state's highest point and the highest point in the entire
Rocky Mountains.[2][3] Colorado has more than 50 mountain peaks that
exceed 4,000meters (13,123ft) elevation. Colorado is the only U.S.
state that lies entirely above 1,000meters (3,281ft) elevation. The
point where the Arikaree River flows out of Yuma County, Colorado, and
into Cheyenne County, Kansas, is the lowest point in the State of
Colorado at 3,315feet (1,010m) elevation. This crossing point holds
the distinction of being the highest low point of any U.S. state.[8][2]

Nearly half of the state is flat in stark contrast to Colorado's rugged
Rocky Mountains. East of the Southern Rocky Mountains are the Colorado
Eastern Plains of the High Plains, the section of the Great Plains
