Would have to agree with everyone on the San Juans. I still think the Maroon Bells in fall are unparalleled, mostly because they are so different in appearance from any other peaks I've ever seen. Used to go the same weekend, every fall, and it was never busy.

The Sierra Nevadas are a personnel favorite though and similar in appearance to the SJs.https://www.google.com/search?q=sier...FsTs2QWPqNDkDg

That really is stunning, thank you.
I've seen my share of beautiful landscapes over the years. But when I fly from Denver to Montrose, and see the first view of the big mountains, some with snow on top, my heart never fails to skip a beat. It is seeing into the heart of beauty for me.
I am glad so many people have the same feeling about the ocean- more mountains for me.

Wow !! great photo. One of my favorite backpacking trips ever was through the MB's.

In addition to ranges already mentioned-one of my favorites is the Gore Range-often seen, but not too well trampled.

I spent about seven years exploring the Colorado mountains on my motorcycle, from southern Wyoming (the Snowy Range is fabulous motorcycle riding) to southern Colorado. All the mountains drives are wonderful, but my all-time favorite is the Million Dollar Highway. Incredibly beautiful scenery. I have to say, though, that I never, EVER want to ride a motorcycle over Red Mountain Pass again! Scary!!! :-)

Great photos, everyone!

To me nothing beats the Colorado Trail from Durango to Lake City area. Fantastic views!
