The Centennial State

From all the places I visited in my life, very few impressed me the way Colorado did. Words or pictures are not enough, so you better put it on your bucket list. 

I can't chose what I liked the most: the wilderness of the Flat Tops with its whispering aspens, the wildlife of the of the Rocky Mountains National Park, the quiet mornings and sunset hatches of the Yampa River, or maybe the tirelessness of the Elk River cutting its way through the stone. Was it the snow covered 14 000 footers or the most dramatic multiple rainbows I ever experienced? Maybe fishing the headwaters of the mighty Colorado River or getting lost in the meanders of Poudre River in search of the wild browns?
