Colorful Colorado

Colorful Colorado

If you have never seen colorful Colorado, the state’s motto for all of its beauty, then you are missing out on something very special. It’s the first break from the hours-long drive through Arizona, Utah, the California desert or Nevada. It’s the first glimpse of lush greenery, full-scale and majestic mountains.

Throughout the year, in any given month, at least one part of Colorado receives snowfall. The peaks are just that high to allow that to happen. Even in September some mountains are already white as can be. It’s not just the nature scape provided by the many kinds of majestic mountains that make Colorado spectacular.

It is a combination of the amount of the sunshine, the lush foliage, the bodies of water, the plains, and the grasses that culminate in its wonderful natural beauty. People who come to visit hardly ever want to leave. It’s spectacular visual changes by the day, as the weather and the seasons roll on by.

The summers are great, as they are very mild and spring like. People enjoy the time outside without all the snow, and without all the cold weather.

Meanwhile, during the wintry months (which can include fall and spring), the natural beauty is breath taking. And, it is not just coming from out West, where the state is surrounded by arid desert. It is coming from the east, where it is surrounded by flat plains that go on for states.

Eastern Colorado, after Denver, on East, is like a different state altogether. It is flat and provides great farm land. Though, the definite areas to check out are the mountains, like in Vail, Breckenridge, and Aspen.

From there go on to Denver, for a taste of a beautiful city and its lifestyle. Then, be sure to make a trip out to the eastern part of the state. Get a real feel for the plains that exist within Colorado. A lot of people go skiing and snowboarding and then go home.

They make it as far as the airport and Denver, and call it a trip. Remember Colorado was part of U.S. history as part of the Wild West. Check out Kit Carson County Jail. The Pawnee played a role in the state long before it was America. Pay tribute and visit the Pawnee National Grassland.

Of course, the mountainous states would be nothing without the telegraph. Check out the Mountain States Telephone and Telegraph Museum in eastern Colorado.
