"C" is for COLORADO!

Hurry over to Jenny's and visit all the cool Alphabe Thursday participates. I am posting about the letter "C". Oh I had some good thoughts cross my mind,  but Colorado, my home and birthplace won out over candy a favorite treat and "Can do" attittudes and l my chaotic life. Dogs everywhere underfoot. Housing woes.  Sick kid, busy job. The list goes on. Now before you tell me to have some cheese and "whine" just look at Colorado proud post!

I love where I love. I have always loved this state. I grew up in the Southern part of the state and as a kid I took a lot of flack from people teasing me about living in the city where the Colorado State Hospital resides. Today I realize what a remarkable place that hospital really is. Go here and you can learn more about this place that has provided quality mental health care since 1879!

Can you say CSI-Pueblo?

I love my state for the four seasons that we experience. Here are some internet images of Western Colorado. If you like outdoor activities you are in the right place. Skiing, swimming, fun in the sun. We have a year round bevy of activities for every personality!
I love the weather. We have so many days of sunshine. We have a saying here, "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes, it will change."  I have seen sunshine,hail,thunder, lightening,rain and snow in a day! Seriously, not kidding!


We brag about about the high altitude here. If you can breathe here you can breathe anywhere! We have here some of the most beautiful mountain peaks and scenery anywhere.


If you live in Northglenn, Colorado currently my home, you will be able to walk, ride a bike or run on 28 miles of trails. Go here  to get the scoop!


Denver is ranked one of the heath conscience cities in America and sell less donuts here than anywhere. Amazing isn't it?

I love my birthplace and my home. If you have not been here please put Colorado on your bucket list. There is so much to see and do. I can not list it all here. But I do hope you enjoyed my mini tour of my state.

Hi Anne Sweetie...
Oh I love the share this evening. Yes Colorado is a beautiful state, and you do have so many things one can do.

I love it when you share you photos of the travels about your beautiful state. I have been to Colorado a couple of times for training. It snowed while we were there and it was beautiful. Then it stopped snowing, and we had sunshine, and before we left at the end of the week it was raining to beat the band. All in one week. Yes, you have a very interesting state.

Hope you have a beautiful day tomorrow. Many hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Hi Anne...

My dad and I stopped at The Human Bean th is morning...my favorite coffee drive-thru coffee spot. There was a brand new barista there. My dad asked her where she was from and she's visiting from Colorado. She's a Human Bean barista in Colorado. She was here working for a ltitle bit to see how things are done in Oregon...and she said there are SIX...count them SIX "The Human Bean" locations in Colorado. So you might see if one of them is near you!!! :) :) :) it's really great coffee!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

I'm so happy to see your pride and joy in the place you live.

I have never been to Colorado.

After I saw your lovely pictures, though, I think I need to remedy this sad oversite on my part.

Thanks for the little trip on our journey through Alphabe-Thursday.

I enjoyed my stop here.

A+
