the center of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, framed by the grandeur
of the Continental Divide, the Town of Pitkin is part of Gunnison County
which stretches across nearly 2 million acres of spectacular countryside.
The area is unprecedented for unspoiled wilderness and alpine splendor.
National Forest land and recreation areas blanket close to 85% of the
county, providing a sanctuary for countless birds, animals and fish. Gunnison
County contains 14,000 foot mountain peaks, giant man-made reservoirs,
lots of sunshine, snowfall and friendly people.
