Again, California FTW.
Well, what I mean is that California offers everything the rest of The Contiguous Western US offers--the Pacific Northwest Redwoods, the Mountain West skiing, and the Desert Southwest deserts, AND California offers the Southern California beach vibe unparalleled on the Western US. California = Entire Western US + More!

My comment had nothing to do with comparing CA to CO. I was simply making fun of the CO obsession with climbing all peaks above 14,000'.

California is overrated and most of the west actually dislikes it and Californians. High crime, high taxes, high cost of living - low quality of life. It's not a great place to live and other states are managed better

I agree, especially in other western states. In some of them you'll be lucky to hear local residents go three sentences without saying the name of the state.

I agree on your quality of life statement.

I’d agree that the western part of the country (from Colorado west, maybe even also beginning at the western half of the Dakotas down through The SW corner of Texas) is more similar than the Eastern half of the country. But I wouldn’t go so far as to call it CA expanded as I find CA has more differences than most of the interior West/PNW.

I can go days without thinking about California. That's not to be construed as negative or detrimental. California is a powerhouse. It's the 5th largest economy in the world. I don't get all the California bashing. Why do people let it occupy space in your brain or in your life if you only have negative thoughts about it? It's pretty sad that some people have made it almost a life mission to bad-mouth a state.

California is the LeBron James of states if there's one state to think about why not California. What bothers me is when people let their political views cloud how things actually are. Winch majority of the California bashing stems from political ideologies.
