It's difficult to understand the size of Colorado until you spend time traveling through the various sections of the Rocky Mountains.  The state holds thousands of peaks over 11,000 feet.  Most of these peaks are found in the major mountain ranges.  But Colorado has many other ranges - large and small.  The Gore Range, Mummy Range, Flat Tops, and others contain peaks over 12,000 feet in height - but no 14ers.  14ers can only be found in the following ranges:
