The large areas of rolling hills of sagebrush shrublands are often broken by steep sandstone cliffs and canyons. The wagon trains from the east had many troubles crossing Colorado. After climbing over the high Rocky Mountains, these unexpected steep cliffs and canyons of the semidesert shrubland and the lack of water made it very difficult for the wagon trains to cross southern and western parts of Colorado.
