I’ve lived on the Front Range of Colorado for a number of years now. When you mention Colorado to someone who doesn’t live here, my observation is that most people tend to think of pristine, snowy, mountain-filled landscapes.
I love that Colorado. But there is another Colorado, too. Roughly half the state is flat plains, having more in common with places like Kansas or Nebraska than Vail or Aspen. That’s a Colorado worth knowing as well, equally compelling in its own way.
