Colorado of the blue skies and fall colours
Colorado of the cowboys and the mountains
Why do we love thee? Let us count the reasons!
Colorado, we lost our hearts to you!
For your Balancing Rock in Garden of the Gods, which truly look like the gods frolic here
For your Hanging Lake which is the colour of every traveller’s envy
For your fall-coloured hikes in Aspen that lead straight into the mountains
For our first snowy hike that turned us into kids again
For your strange and incredibly appealing indie culture
For your azure mountain lakes that made our hearts swell
For your hot springs that steamed with mineral goodness even while snow lined their edges
For your thick snow that tempted us into making a stunted snowman
For your Independence Pass, which lies 12000 feet high on a continental divide, and stunned us into silence
