Whatever You Want Is in Colorado

There’s a lot going on in the American west, there’s no doubt about that, and when it comes to some of the very best states in the American west it really is hard to narrow them down because so many of them are full of excitement, natural beauty, great people and fun times to be had all the time. But there is one state that stands out amongst the crowd of other western states as almost an island of paradise in the middle of the entire country, and that state just so happens to be Colorado. I love Colorado so much and I was lucky enough to live there for five years of my life before moving to Los Angeles, and as you can imagine living in Los Angeles completely sucks compared to living in the beautiful state of Colorado where nature is everywhere and there aren’t so many douche bags that are constantly being idiots on the roads and doing stupid shit all the time like here in Los Angeles.

But fuck, California, because it really has got nothing on Colorado in any way shape or form no matter how adamant Californians are about how cool their state is and all that dumb shit they will never understand how cool Colorado is until they live there, which a lot of them end up doing because they get sick of California after a certain amount of time like any human would, but of course in Colorado there is a quaint and beautiful sense to the world where the people are even nicer than anywhere else in the country and the adventures and fun times are always just around the corner because it really is a place full of outdoor adventure.

Of course when it comes to the fun shit to do in Colorado everyone thinks of snow skiing and snowboarding because it really is one of the best places in the entire world to do winter sports because the mountains are absolutely gigantic and there is always a ton of snow that accumulates every winter in Colorado without fail. It’s always going to be like that there and it’s just so cool be cause Colorado is really experiencing a great year right now with a lot of great snow conditions at all the ski resorts and of course the Denver Broncos just winning the Super Bowl just the other day.

Yes, it is safe to say that Colorado is one of the best places to live on earth and there really is an endless amount of things to do there. One of the great things that a lot of people over look about Colorado is the summer time and of course when it is summer time in Colorado everyone is getting out deeper into the wilderness and backpacking to extreme areas and really getting out in nature for multiple days if not weeks at a time.

So if you are interested in doing some backpack adventures in Colorado then you have come to the right website because this entire list of articles is dedicated to all the cool shit to do in Colorado and this particular article is all about some really epic backpacking adventures that you can do in all different areas in Colorado. One of the really great areas for camping in general during the summer time in Colorado is an area that tends to not get as many tourists, but still is a well known area in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Also another completely epic area of Colorado is the San Juan Mountain Range as well as the Gunnison and Durango areas of the state where trails and campgrounds are literally everywhere and waterfalls can be found and jumped off of easily without fail.

So if you are interested in living in Colorado then you are an extremely smart individual because it is one of the best places on earth, and there is no denying the facts that Colorado will be one of the best places to live in for the rest of time and as long as humans populate this beautiful earth, and of course the beautiful state of Colorado. So go to Colorado, get lost, and find yourself in the process.


Let’s Be Real

Let’s be real, America. When it comes down to it, if you live on the east coast you are probably doing something wrong with your life. I grew up in North Carolina and I’ll seriously be the first one to say that the east coast just sucks a big donkey penis when it comes down to comparing it to the western side of the United States, and it’s just funny because so many people still live on the east side of the country as compared to the west, but of course there are still more and more people moving west from the east, and now in recent years it has become easier than ever to pack up your things and make a big time move from the east coast to the west coast, and of course a lot of people are doing just that.

So if you are the type of person who gosh darn sick of living on the east coast, and if you are young person then you should definitely be at least curious about moving out west because you have your whole life ahead of you, then you should definitely consider doing something and figuring out where exactly you’d like to move to out west before you make your epic journey of a lifetime, but probably temporarily because you’ll need to get a job first most likely and if you are from the east coast then you might not get jobs as easy out west because there is definitely some home bread favoritism out in the west, so just be aware of that and know that you’ll probably have to out compete a lot of people who grew up in the west and have had much more fulfilling lives then you have had up to this point of your life.

But it’s OK, because this is America and anyone can move anywhere if they put their minds to it, and for sure you’ll want to consider moving to Colorado because it just so happens to be one of the very best western states in the whole country, and this entire website is dedicated the Centennial State and all of its wondrous glory that it contains, and of course Colorado really does obtain so much natural beauty and there is obviously a bunch of fun shit to do in Colorado. Throughout the articles in this website we have talked a lot about the fun things to do in Colorado, but there is one really cool thing that we have not talked about just yet, and that cool activity just so happens to be rock climbing. Of course wherever there are cool mountains there will be some good rock climbing, but in Colorado rock climbing has taken a whole new level and it is now considered one of the best places in the entire world to rock climb and is considered a Mecca of rock climbing.

Whether you are living in Boulder, Colorado or a bunch of other places throughout the state you are going to be really close by to some really great rock climbing spots that will challenge even the best climbers in the world, and of course are not for the faint of heart.

One really great area to rock climb in Colorado just so happens to be the Boulder, Colorado area, and that’s because Boulder is surrounded by the Flatiron mountain range that is one of the most beautiful places in the state and especially in the Front Range area of the state. There in the Flatirons there are perfect rock formations for climbing, and of course because the rocks are absolutely perfect an entire rock climbing community has formed in Boulder and grown over the years making it into a climber’s paradise of all sorts. It’s really a beautiful place, but compared to some of the big mountains they are just small chump mountains in Colorado. If you are a really experienced climber and you want to do something absolutely epic then you can climb up mountains that reach over 14,000 feet in elevation, and that’s Colorado Rocky Mountain high if you ask me.

So if you head to Colorado get some ropes, a helmet and some climbing shoes and start climbing!

The 50 States

When it comes to the United States everyone knows that there is 50 states that are all unique in their own ways, and of course when we start to think about all the uniqueness of each state then we have to consider that there are some states that are better and some states that aren’t so fun as compared to some of the more fun states. For the most part the western side of the United States is a lot more fun because let’s be honest, the west is the best, and the east is kind of boring when it comes down to comparing it to the west. There just isn’t the same type of nature and landscapes on the east coast as there is in the western region of the United States, and it’s not to say that the east isn’t beautiful because it is a really great place where a ton of people live for a reason, and that’s because it is comfortable and really pretty a lot of the times of the year, but nothing compares to the great American west, and when it comes to the American west one of the best states in the region has to be Colorado.

Colorado has everything and then some when it comes to the western states in the United States, and a lot of people think that California is the best state in the country because it kind of gets that reputation, but the truth of the matter is that now in 2016 Colorado is definitely the coolest state by far in the United States, and there is a lot of good reasons for that. Partly because it is in the middle of the country and has been a sort of getaway place for all the people who have gotten sick of the east coast and wanted to head west to a comfortable spot but didn’t want to have to drive all the way to California settle down in Colorado. It’s also one of the best places ever of all time to settle down in and start a life that you know is going to be a lot of fun and can be an endless amount of adventure.

Of course there is a lot of outdoor activities that are all a part of the Colorado culture, and one of the most fun things to do in the nature of Colorado has to be fishing of all types. Of course a lot of people come to Colorado for skiing and other extreme sports, but the fishing in Colorado is really fun and you can definitely catch some great fresh water fish everywhere you go, and there are simply a ton of great spots in and around the Front Range area as well as high up in the mountains where you might not expect there to be a really good fish population because it’s so cold. But even though the water may be cold year round, you are definitely going to get a lot of great fishing experiences in Colorado, and that’s why it is one of the best fishing states in all of America and has become a fishing tourism spot just as much as skiing in terms of the summer time tourism.

So let’s say you may live in Boulder or Denver and you want to get out of the cities and find some really good fishing spots because of course there are a ton that are within an hour drive of where you live so you might as well get up there and start looking for your favorite spots that are just on the other side of the front range. If you live in Boulder then one of the best spots to go fishing has to be Gross Reservoir which is just on the other side of the Flatirons and is the drinking water reservoir for the city of Denver, and it really is a beautiful place. If you do end up fishing at Gross Reservoir then you’ll want to have a four wheel drive car that can go all the way around the lake on the dirt road to the boat entrance, and then you will want to hike around the lake to the part of the lake where the lake meets the rushing river. There is the spot where you will meet trout gangs and other great fishermen in one of the best spots in the Front Range area.

How About Oaklahoma

A lot of people like to rank the best states in the United States of America as if there is some kind of ratings system on cost of living and happiness levels across different areas, but let’s also be honest and say that living in Oklahoma probably isn’t the most fun place to be and settle down with your family. In fact, I’ve been to Oklahoma and it was actually a pretty place, but I could never imagine myself living there for any considerable amount of time, and that’s why there are a lot of places we call fly over states in the United States, and what’s so funny is that a lot of fly over states are right near one of the best sates in the country, and you probably already know that I’m talking about Colorado.

Colorado just is one of those places where a lot of people can settle down and be happy for the rest of their life. It’s the weather, it’s the people and it’s the entire energy in a place like Colorado that makes it such an amazing place. Oh, and did I forget to mention that there are a lot mountains in Colorado? Because when it comes down to it the Rocky Mountains in Colorado are some of the most beautiful mountains in all of the country, and there’s no denying the fact that they are some of the best mountains to ski and hike in no matter where you are on earth. It really is mountain country up in Colorado, and maybe you aren’t the type of person who enjoys cold weather, but if that is the case then you probably aren’t adventurous enough to live in a place like Colorado because the people who live and thrive in Colorado are the type of people who want to get out and enjoy the natural beauty and divine attributes of nature, and they definitely are tough enough to go on strenuous hikes and get out there because they like exercise and they want to get out in nature as much as humanly possible. It’s just part of the Colorado culture to want to be outdoors, and why wouldn’t you want to be outdoors all the time when the outdoors are seriously so freaking cool everywhere you look?

So if you are the type of person who loves Colorado, or maybe you are thinking about moving there sometime in the near future and you want to know what’s good out there, or maybe you even live in Colorado and you are just looking for some cool things to do next weekend or in the next few months then you have come to the right place on the internet because this entire website is dedicated to Colorado and all the cool shit that you can do throughout the state, so sit back relax, crack open a nice craft IPA and start reading away and enjoy what we got next for you on our website, which just so happens to be white water rafting.

Of course everyone thinks skiing is one of the biggest activities or sports in Colorado, and that’s because it definitely is, but of course skiing pretty much only happens in the winter time at resorts and in general unless you got some guts and the equipment to hike or skin up a glacier, then you can ski all year long in Colorado. But what happens come around May or June is that the snow starts to melt and run into some of the bigger rivers and creeks that run through giant canyons and down some incredible rapids all across the state. When this happens it is all of a sudden white water rafting season in Colorado, and this is one of the coolest activities and sports that you can do in the state. Of course a lot of people prefer kayaking, and kayaking is definitely a really fun thing to do as well during this time of the year, but the point is that if you are into this type of thing, and who isn’t, then Colorado is a great place to plan a trip to raft or just to go raft one afternoon on the weekend. Some good places to go rafting include Clear Creek Canyon near Idaho Springs as well as way out west near Durango and in that area of the San Juan Mountain Range. Of course Steamboat Springs and other areas across the state are also really great rafting rivers too.

What to do in Colorado

It’s pretty well known throughout the entire United States that there are quite a few states that stand out amongst the rest as some of the best places to live in the entire nation, and if we don’t consider Alaska and Hawaii then we can really start to narrow down some of the best states in the union. Of course there really are great places to live in every state, and that’s just part of what makes the United States such a great place to live, because there really is a ton of great places to live, but of course when we start comparing whole states and their entirety we can start to narrow down which states are the very best. No one would deny that one of the coolest states to live in and go on vacation to in general has to be Colorado, and there are really so many different reasons why Colorado is one of the best states in the United States, and subsequently one of the best territories in the entire world.

There’s just something very magical about Colorado that makes it one of the best places for anyone anywhere to want to go visit and live in, and the truth of the matter is that just going on a skiing vacation for a week with your family to a resort town doesn’t quite cut it because although you will definitely get a good and fun experience out on the slopes there really is nothing better than living really close to some of the world’s best skiing slopes and being able to do these types of adventures on a regular basis during the winter. But the truth of the matter is that a lot of people only come to visit Colorado during the winter time because that is when the skiing season is up and running and that’s pretty much what everyone comes to Colorado as tourists to do, which makes sense because skiing probably is the most fun thing you can do in Colorado just like a lot of other places, but the truth of the matter is that Colorado’s big secret is the summer time, and it really is such an amazing place to go visit and live in when the weather is nice and hiking and camping and so many other mountain adventures open up to your capabilities because of the summer season.


So if you are the type of person who is interested in learning more about Colorado or maybe you just really love it and you want to read up on how cool it is and all the cool things you can do in Colorado then you have come to the right place on the internet because this entire website is dedicated to Colorado and helping people get around the state and learn about some of the best shit to do all over the state so that the next time you visit you’ll have a good idea of where you want to go or if you live there you can plan your next weekend getaway to a magical place you never knew existed, which there will be plenty of in these articles.


But for now let’s start talking about one of the best things to do in the entire state, and you don’t have to just do this during the winter time if you know where to go: skiing and snowboarding. Whether you are shredding up the mountains in Summit County like Breckenridge, Vail, Keystone or Arapahoe Basin or maybe if you are going up north to towns like Steamboat Springs, or maybe even trekking out to Aspen, Crested Butte or the San Juan Mountain Range there really is an endless amount of resort skiing in Colorado, and that is why it is known as Ski Country, USA. If you do decide to ski up in the famous Summit County area then I definitely have some tricks up my sleeve that you should know about, and these places are seriously some of the most magical and largest mountains that you can ski on in the entire world, so it’s safe to say there is a lot to see in Summit County.
