Rangely, Co., close to the Utah border, in the far northwest corner of Colorado, is probably best known for its 700 pumpjacks. One of the nation's largest oil wells, in fact, is just outside town in the tough, barren landscape of sagebrush and juniper. Before modern tycoons discovered oil, though, Rangley was an Ute trading post and, later, ranchers' territory.
A great place to cool off in the summer is Kenny Reservoir, five miles to the east. Boating, fishing, and swimming are all permitted at this small, but pleasant watering hole. For a sunset and solitude, drive about 20 minutes south of town up Rabbit Mountain, where worries fade and memories are made.
