Highest in the Land

ElavationCielo Vista Vacation Properties would like to Welcome you, your family, friends, or group to the "Highest Incorporated Town" in the United States, Leadville, Colorado, 10,152'. Civilization as you know is all down hill from here! Literally. In fact the backbone of the U.S., The Continental Divide, runs just to the west side of town. You can't miss it. It's that grey rocky thing that rises 2,500' above tree line and runs from Canada to New Mexico. On the day the Duke died, Jimmy Buffet found himself on the Continental Divide. Pondering which direction to take, he decided to ride into Leadville and have a beer. Or so the song goes. Leadville is that kind of town where you can slow down, have a beer,  and reflect on life or go for the gusto in the great outdoors with extreme activities such as climbing to the top of the 2 tallest mountains in the entire Rocky Mountain Range.
