This is all opinion anyway and this is getting away from what the first guy said. There is nothing of real significance in that state. I know I lived there for three years.

Officially the Peace Garden State. But they go by many different names. One I always kinda liked was the Rough Rider State. Haha.

Your state doesn't even deserve a golfclap. I hope like heck for the sake of most of the people in the country that the other states in the west get hardcore with California so they can try to keep Californians from inflating the entire western US to no end. All that's left for them to do is destroy and cutoff the rest of the western states from the poorer and middle class, and bring their arsed out careless culture with them. You couldn't do better job of putting more pressure on your people than California has.
All of that would be very true if California only consisted of Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Even though I do agree with this statement, please try to differentiate So Cal from the rest of the state. Trust me when I say the rest of California (including...make that especially the Bay Area) feels the same way!

Colorado (the mountains mainly). Too much dirt. Not enough diversity of trees (Aspen, Blue Spruce). Not enough diverisity of wild flowers (yellow), altitude, dryness (nose bleeds, dandruff), people who do not know how to have a good time that does not involve being OUTSIDE, Not enough water (lakes, rivers), cougars.

On the up side Colorado does have a good supply of Native peoples who have not been totally screwed up by the whole popular culture, consumer mentality *yet*.

FYI I lived there (Durango) for years and hated every single minute.

Ah yes, the voice of reason. Why am I not surprised? If you can't come up with anything rational, veiled personal attacks are always the option of choice, nes't pas?

How sad that a person cannot honestly answer a question without someone taking it personally. The internet is full of them.
