The highest point within the state is Wheeler Peak, near the centre of the eastern boundary, with an elevation of 13,058 ft.; the lowest points are along the Colorado river, where the altitudes range from 700 to Boo ft.
It lies generally at altitudes between 2000 ft.
But these altitudes are largely matters of conjecture.
The altitudes at which these bodies are visibly presented to us differ in individual cases.
The passes in the Lower Astin-tagh range from altitudes of 10,150 to 10,700 ft., and in the Upper Astintagh at 11,770 to 15,680 ft.
