Chaffee County is located in
central Colorado in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. It is surrounded by numerous
"13ers" and "14ers" (mountains with an elevation of 13,000 and 14,000+ feet in elevation),
with the continental divide serving as its western border. Salida is the county seat. The county thrives on tourism in the summer months, with whitewater rafting down the Arkansas River as a popular activity.
NOTE: The photo above of Mt. Princeton was taken near Buena Vista by photographer Steve Garufi.
