I have written several posts (many actually) about my great home state of Colorado. With our capital, Denver, that always ranks in the top 3-5 cities for most days of sunshine its hard to have a bad attitude here. Add to that the backdrop to our west of the Rocky Mountains and the drawing card just gets stronger here. Colorado has a very entrepreneurial make up and some of the healthiest resident among all 50 states. We got our nickname of the "Mile High" City due to being 5280 feet (1 mile) above sea level. The funny thing is Denver is among the flatest cities in all of North America but you wouldnt know it from the backdrop we have of the Rocky Mountains.
To start things off let me talk about the famed outdoor amphitheater Red Rocks this half God created, half man created venue starts off the season each year for Easter Sunrise Service and is something people fly in from all over the country to experience. It hosts films, music of all types and many a health nut or want to be health improved person who comes to exercise and run its stairs. Whats better then being in shape, getting your exercise and doing it in a setting this beautiful? I also cannot tell you how many times I hear "it doesnt matter who is playing any show at Red Rocks is special"!
Next let me show you one of our famed sunsets. The sprinkling of reds & pinks with heavy oranges and blues give story to some who say "if God didnt love the Broncos so much why are our sunsets orange and blue"? While that may be a stretch remember (give me some grace I didnt make it up lol). Colorado is truly magical and something special. Pictures are nice but nothing does it justice like viewing it in person.
Lastly let me end at the top. Let me take you to the peaks of one of its many 14,000 ft mountains. The setting is purely majestic and something to behold in person. As you drive up from Denver to the top of the highest paved road in North America you pass wildlife and then get a view many will never get to experience, so I will paste a pic for you to enjoy of a summit lake in the high country of Colorado's Rocky Mountains...
I hope you enjoy this and it inspires you to come visit this beautiful state and take in some of the many things there are to do here. Between mountain biking, skiing/boarding, rock climbing, hiking, sight seeing, hunting, fishing, zip lining, white water rafting etc about the only thing we don thave here is surfing!. Who knows you may even be fortunate enough to call it home!
