Over 80% of the population lives in an urban belt that extends
along the foothills of the Rocky Mountains from Fort Collins in the
north via the two largest cities, Denver and Colorado Springs,
to Pueblo in the south. This high-traffic belt marks the transition
between the flat, semi-dry prairie in the east (about 2/5 of
the area) and the mountain ranges and the high-lying plateaus in the
west. The prairie is dominated by mechanized irrigation (wheat,
maize, sugar beet, alfalfa), while the mountain areas are covered by
forests, meadows and cultivated fields. Highest point is Mt. Elbert
(4399 m) followed by more than 800 snow-covered peaks above 3000 m.
Near the waterfront Continental Divide springs several
major rivers, of which South Platte and Arkansas have drainage to
the east, while the watery Colorado River is heavily regulated and
since 1959, when the impressive Colorado-Big Thompson Project was
completed, via pipelines has supplied water to the prairie areas in
addition to rapidly declining groundwater reserves.
In connection with agriculture there are sugar factories,
breweries (Coors) and a significant meat industry. Other
important industries are the electronics, chemical and aerospace
industries, which through federal investment have been a major cause
of industrial growth since World War II. Several research labs are
also run for federal funding, including one of the world's leading
centers of atmospheric exploration, NCAR in Boulder. Colorado is
home to air bases, the headquarters of the North American Air
Defense Command (NORAD) and the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado
Springs. Formerly dominant mining has diminished in importance, but
besides a large production of coal, oil and natural gas, Colorado is
still among the United States' leading producers of gold, silver,
uranium and alloys (molybdenum, vanadium, etc.). Several of the
1800's many small mining towns, including Aspen, Breckenridge and
Telluride, have emerged as exclusive holiday centers since the
1950s, attracting millions of tourists (skiing) in particular in the
winter. In addition, the mountain areas offer spas, rafting,
fishing, golf and cycling, which have all made tourism one of the
state's largest and fastest growing industries. Attractions include
the Black Canyon and Great Sand Dunes National Monuments and Rocky
Mountain and Mesa Verde National Parks.
US acquired most of Colorado at Louisiana Purchase in 1803, and
the rest was annexed 1848. The US settlement however took first
speed after gold discoveries around 1860 and rail links in the
1870s, as the original inhabitants, prairie tribes Cheyenne and Arapahoe in
the east and mountain Indians ute in the west, was forced
to relocate to Oklahoma and Utah. The silver find at Leadville in
1877 led to a fivefold increase in population during the 1880s, but
the following decade's tight monetary policy in the United States
limited silver production and threw the state into a protracted
