Maybe not that part of Switzerland
President Theodore Roosevelt once said, "Passing through your wonderful mountains and canyons I realize that this state is going to be more and more the playground for the whole republic... You will see this the real Switzerland of America." We don't like to brag, but Switzerland has 10 peaks "close to or higher than 13,000 feet" while Colorado has nearly 600 that are 13,000 feet or higher. Still, the Matterhorn (pictured here) is hard to beat.
