You know You're from Colorado if......

your from Colorado if----

You'll eat ice cream in the winter.

When the weather report says it's going to be 65 degrees, you shave your legs and wear a skirt.

It snows 5 inches and you don't expect school to be cancelled.

You'll wear flip flops every day of the year, regardless of temperature.

You have no accent at all, but can hear other people's. And then you make fun of them.

"Humid" is over 25%.

Your sense of direction is: Toward the mountains and Away from the mountains.

You say "the interstate" and everybody knows which one.

You think that May is a totally normal month for a blizzard, and you grew up planning your halloween costumes around your coat.

You know what the Continental Divide is.

You don't think Coors beer is that big a deal.

You went to Casa Bonita as a child.

You bought your car from John Elway.

You were tear gassed at college and you can't even remember why....something about football...

You've gone off-roading in a vehicle that was never intended for such activities.

You always know the elevation of where you are.

You know that there are two kinds of Colorado Girls: those who shave, and those who don't.

You wake up to a beautiful, 80 degree day and you wonder if it's going to snow tomorrow.

You don't care that some company renamed it, the Broncos still play at Mile High.

You get mad when people confuse Colorado with Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, or "one of those other big square states out west."

When you hear that the Chiefs and the Raiders are hav ing bad seasons, you laugh uncontrollably.

Every movie theater has military and student discounts.

Everybody wears jeans to church.

You actually know that South Park is a real place not just a show on TV.

You know what Focus on the Family is, and you feel very stongly about it in one direction or another.

You know what a "trust fund hippy" is, and you know its natural habitat is Boulder.

You've made naked snow angels.

You know you're talking to a fellow Coloradoan when they call it Elitches, not Six Flags.

You can never figure out why your out-of-town guests faint from altitude sickness on a picnic to the mountains.

A bear on your front porch doesn't bother you nearly as much as a Democrat in Congress does.

Your two favorite teams are the Broncos and whoever is beating the crap out of the Raiders.

You've been to the original Chipotle near the DU campus on Evans.

When people out East tell you they h ave mountains in their state too, you just laugh.

You go anywhere else on the planet and the air feels "sticky" and you notice the sky is no longer blue.

Ouch (for Longmont) ! ! ! I haven't spent any time there in about 6 years now, but I do know just what and where you mean! I think the turkey processing plant is gone now. Anyone want to ring on in this and give us the latest?

No matter where you live, you know someone on the other side of the divide.

You wonder why Mid-Westerners freak out over 6" of snow.

You don't drink Coors beer or listen to John Denver. (Someone actually asked me about that.)

LMAO!!! If CW sang lead for JD I'd probably be less offended. Some guy from Iowa changes his name, sings about the mountains and people in other states conjure his image when I say where I'm from. Just one "faaaaaaaaaaarr out!" too many I guess.

and you were good to go.

Love the original post, especially since I'm now living in northern new york and without the front range near me I have no idea what direction I'm going in. I laugh out loud when people here tell me that the Adirondacks are mountains and yes the sky is totally different here. I miss the blue sky!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Colorado how I miss you so!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a care package Libra:

Hopefully you'll find the Hue you've been missing. I know how much I missed the hills when I lived out of state. After nearly 20 years of living in the metro area, my wife has finally spent some time in the mountains. She finally stopped talking about moving, unless it's up higher.

It snows 5 inches, and you don't drive 15 mph or less nor put your vehicle in the ditch.

Thanks!

Here's a write up for Jenny Creek. There are a lot of features on this page, including a map: http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=17

They say Rollins Pass, I said Corona Pass; I think it's the same. If the Needle's Eye were passable, you could drive over to the Frasier Valley on this road.

Here is what we drove on our great adventure, and yeah, that passenger rear does have air underneath! LOL
