Indians first inhabited Colorado. Spanish explorers arrived in 1541. But it wasn't until gold was discovered in 1858 that prospectors became seriously interested in settling in Colorado. Mining became a focus in the western part of the state, while cattle ranchers and farmers settled in the east. Vacationers marvel at Mesa Verde National Park and its cliff-dweller remains.
