Colorado - Elevation Tints
Map - Our classic map of Colorado uses elevation tints in subtle hues of green, tan, and brown to show the differences in elevation throughout the state, from the lowest point, 3,317' where the Arikaree River meets the Kansas border, to the highest point, Mt. Elbert at 14,440'.
This topographic map displays an incredible amount of detail, from cities, highways, and mountain ranges, to valleys, rivers, and small towns. The Colorado map elevations are represented by color, and this, in combination with our special relief shading technique, gives the map a lush, 3-dimensional look.
