Thanks in part to its high elevation, Colorado’s weather patterns are largely dictated by the terrain of mountains and valleys, as well as arid plains. Its climate is generally semi-arid, with an alpine climate in the high mountains. Extreme weather is not uncommon, with heavy hailstorms and thunderstorms. Wildfires have become an increasingly severe problem, thanks to prolonged high temperatures and droughts in the plains.
The I-70 cuts across Colorado from east to west. Colorado trucking companies frequently carry goods along this route internally, connecting Fort Collins to Pueblo via Denver and Boulder. Colorado freight companies traveling east to west on I-70 (or northwest on I-76) also travel through the state capital of Denver in transit between Utah and Kansas. Colorado is well served by a network of state roads cutting through forests and the Rocky Mountains.
