New Facts!

How about...starting with a few facts about the state that's to be the subject of this newsletter.
It has an average of 296 sunny days per year. The average temperatures statewide are 47 to 10 (highs to lows) in the Winter and 86 to 41 (highs to lows) in the Summer. The state bird is the Lark Bunting. The state flower is the Rocky Mountain Columbine. The fifteenth step on the State Capitol Building is 5,280 feet above sea level. The state tree is the Blue Spruce. The state fossil is the Stegosaurus. (Whatever that is!) The state animal is the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep. It became a state on August 1, 1876, so in honor 0f this, it's called "The Centennial State. It' s highest point is 14,433 feet above sea level. In fact, it has 53 different peaks over 14,000 feet. If you still have not figured out that the state of which we write is Colorado, then it's definitely time for you to find some way to broaden your travel base and get out to see this beautiful state. We talked sometime last winter about the lodges and the wonderful snow sports that are available, so today we are just going to point out some 0f the interesting and/or beautiful parts of the state.
If you come to Colorado from the east, Nebraska or Kansas, the land is flat and rolling and grows lots of wheat. As the roads funnel in toward Denver to the north part of the state or Pueblo on the south, you can gradually see the "purple" in the distance that becomes

larger and larger as you move toward the west. From Denver, or Pueblo, or Colorado Springs, which is about half way between the two other cities, you are at the foot of the U.S. Rockies, and they are majestic. It was the view from Pikes Peak, just west of Colorado Springs, that inspired Katherine Lee Bates to write "America the Beautiful" in 1893. 
To the north of Denver, you can visit Boulder, home of the "Golden Buffalos", or beautiful Estes Park, or travel into the Rocky Mountain National Park. To the west are the mountains and many quaint communities that are interesting in their own ways, ...Georgetown, Vail, Glenwood Springs and finally Grand Junction. The side roads offer many unusual and interesting sights for those who take the time. To the south, Colorado Springs offers the U.S. Air Force Academy, Pikes Peak, and the Garden of the Gods, just to name a few points of interest. From Pueblo, you are close to the Royal Gorge, the Great Sand Dunes National Monument or just over the mountain from the Gunnison National Monument. To the far west and south, you can find the Four Corners and Mesa Verde National Parks. Or the drive by car or rail from Durango to Silverton is worth the trip to Colorado in itself.
We could go on and on about the beauty 0f Colorado, but we just don't have room or have the time. We would, however, be glad to help you make your plans, or provide you with more information.
