Being a Ca native, I of course picked Ca...Co has never really appealed to me, seems too cold. Although, I have family, also from Ca, who have relocated to Co and love it!

Those pictures of smoggy LA and its barren brown mountains crack me up - real beautiful. Non CA'ans -- please note -- LA is NOT like the rest of CA.

As a happy CO resident, I will say that CA is the most diverse, and, in the right spots, insanely beautiful state in this country. I would probably still live there if I could afford half the quality of life that I enjoy here in CO.

I would argue Colorado is more diverse is a smaller area. From Pueblo, industrial city that meets the south west, to Colorado Springs, military city, to Denver, major metro area, to Boulder, liberal college town, and finally Fort Collins, a more conservative mountain feel college town, in only a 150 mile stretch along the Front Range Urban Corridor.

Then you have I-70 from Denver and Highway 50 from Pueblo that can take you to some of the best skiing in the world in less then 2 hours. Not to mention Aspen in the mountains and Grand Junction and Durango on the western slope.

You can argue as much as you please,but it won't change the fact it's not true.

LOL nice play on words but the reality stands Colorado is more diverse in a smaller area with less population.

Not saying Colorado isn't diverse btw and I think I read it wrong,
If you meant it's more diverse in a smaller area than yeah,probably,but California is so much bigger it's hard to say what you can do or see in a certain space.
