Did you know that the Rocky Mountains stretch all the way into Utah?  From the Wasatch Mountains in northern Utah to the eastern edge near Denver, CO.  Right in the middle, down in the southwest corner of Colorado lies the San Juan Mountain range, also known as the "Switzerland of America" due to the steepness of this range. Nestled down in the Animas Valley at the south end of that range is the great little college town, and gateway to the San Juans -- Durango, Colorado.
