Colorado today is famed for its brisk, mountain air, magnificent scenery, and active lifestyle. This western state is home to incomparable ski resorts and winter sport venues set in the Rockies in cities like Aspen, Colorado Springs, and Vail. The ‘Mile High City’ of Denver is full of cultural attractions and professional sports teams, museums and art galleries, and high-octane theme parks. Pike’s Peak near Colorado Springs is the most visited mountain in the continental United States and inspired the song “America the Beautiful.” Throughout this state are small, mountain towns, and even several ghost towns! I grew up here and I want to share it’s charms with you.
