If mountains and lakes are important to you, don’t think of transferring your home to Switzerland. The mountainous area of Colorado is six times the size of Switzerland, and contains 9,600 miles of fishing streams, 2,850 lakes, and over 1,000 peaks that are at least two miles high.

Here’s an amazing distinction. Without moving or settling to any other state, you can be in Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah at the same time. When in Colorado head to the Four Corner Monument, it’s the only place in all of the US where the corners of four states all meet.
