Colorado is known for its diverse geography, ranging from alpine mountains, arid plains, deserts with huge sand dunes, deep canyons, sandstone and granite rock formations, rivers, lakes and lush forests. Northeast, East and Southeast Colorado are mostly the high plains, while Northern Colorado is a mix of high plains, foothills and mountains. Northwest and West Colorado are predominantly mountainous with some deserts mixed in. Southwest and South Colorado are a mixture of desert and mountain areas.

For the most part, Colorado is a very dry state averaging only 17 in of precipitation per year statewide and rarely experiences a time when some portion of the state is not in some degree of drought. The lack of precipitation contributes to the severity of wildfires in the state. However, some of the mountainous regions of Colorado receive huge amounts of moisture from winter snowfalls. Warmer spring temperatures melt this snows and often cause substantial waterflows in the state’s river systems.
