Wannaroo actually that first image seems pretty good although it's in New Zealand so I'd love to see a comparable image in Colorado or at least know where they would be...those mountain ranges do have a decent range of top heights and it's jagged enough...could you perhaps list some places to live in Colorado that would have those types of views from it? ...and I'm not dismissing your Cascades suggestion I'll make a new thread in the Washington section because it looks absolutely gorgeous from google images, your expertise is much appreciated. Thank You!

OK, Colorado, someone has to tell you that there is toilet paper stuck to your shoe.
I am from the Midwest and have visited Colorado every few months for ten yers. My impression of Colorado is that it is dirty, overdeveloped and overpriced. Camping in Colorado is like parking in a trailer park. The quality of everything is poor. There is no workmanship, no pride. Developers have spoiled the whole thing. If that wasnt bad enough, now you have fracking. Colorado is used up.
Too bad.
Like toilet paper on your shoe- its gross.

Though SeniorCitizen's post above is somewhat of a generalization, his/her perception of what development has done to Colorado is pretty spot-on. The state has had to endure decades of tacky, ill-planned, poorly constructed, architecturally tasteless development that would widely be considered an eyesore--were it not for the fact that most modern Americans have been so immersed and brainwashed by that type of suburban crap development that they actually think it is OK. I guess that if all one has lived in all one's life is a pile of horse manure, one really doesn't notice that it smells bad--and that someone who points that out gets flamed for being so "clueless."

I maintain that Colorado still boasts one of the most beautiful geographies on the planet, but one increasingly has to look over the top of bunch of real ugliness to see it. In that sense, Colorado is getting quickly "used up."

Nothing from gemcraver since June???

How was your trip? What did you like? What surprised you?


Fracking: The Greenies and Lefties are lying to you. Fracking doesn't ruin the environment. Check out the Access TV show: FrackNation. You may actually learn something. (Like, there isn't a single instance of water supply being damaged by fracking.)
