And an excellent point it is.

But some of us that do live here really do like the sea of flat and gently rolling hills and tall grass that is the Great Plains


(...and the mountains...and the desert...)

North Dakota may be your best bet. Colorado is not nearly as brown as Louisiana.

If you're in the city, nobody cares where you're from. Based on some of the posts on the Colorado forum, some the the crusty old-timers who live in rural areas don't like people moving to CO from anywhere. But the majority of Coloradans live in the cities along the Front Range.

Most people from Colorado are recently from somewhere else and do not care.

Colorado has its share of rednecks who think that they are brightest and the best because they were born and raised here. Every State has those types of people. I grew up in New York and I never seen a "Native" license plate. However, more than likely, at the time, people were more frugal and no so vain to pay more money for their auto plates

The "Pioneer" license plate is really interesting as this generation is far removed from the settlers of the past, and the only Pioneer spirit they can muster is
the "Pie Near" their coffee.

Colorado has a spot for everyone as far as I'm concerned.
As long as you're not the type that will croak without a major coastline nearby, plenty of sights that will intrigue the mind.

You want green?
Then get off the main freeways and travel along the 160 or 285.
Thanks to those fires shutting down the 25 over the summer, my atypical Denver-ABQ-Denver run became quite an experience!!!

Default Colorful Colorado

Colorful Colorado. Colorado ranges from reds on the Monument in Grand Junction, green in the mountains, yellows in the plains, gray in the city. There are certain areas that are densly wooded, even in the city, and other areas there are no trees for miles. It really depends where you are.
