"A famous place it was in trapper days…and all trails converged there" [From Kit Carson Days, 1809-1868]
Perched high in the Rockies, Park County is a microcosm of Western and natural history. Averaging 9,000 feet in elevation, this compelling region is home to the nation's highest town, ranches, gold mines, mountain passes, and Ute encampments. Historically it was called a salt marsh by Spanish explorers and a game parc by French trappers.
