The Western Slope has about 70 percent of the state's water as tributaries flow from the high mountains to the Colorado River. Western Slope water contributes to a wide variety of crops, fruit orchards, wine vineyards, and much more.
Picturing Western Slope was created in 2021 to explore the life, landscape, and diversity of the region through storytelling pictures. Picturing Western Slope is a not-for-profit, online educational exhibit.
Pictures displayed in the exhibition are all made within the 22-county region identified as Colorado’s Western Slope.
