Here are 20 things only a true Colorado native can relate to.
I'm glad they ditched that stupid Invesco name.
At least the corportion they replaced it with actually relates to sports.
But I still just call it Mile Hi Stadium.
hahahha! those are pretty accurate. And there's more too, like where is the Mousetrap, the Valley Highway, the Boulder Turnpike, and folks did call it the People's Republic of Boulder, and Saudi Aurora (sorry, but they did)
Hah! At 6800+ feet, Green Mountain on the west side of Lakewood is higher than anything in the Appalachians!
When we went back to Massachusetts, our cousins were so impressed to take us up to Mt. Wachusett, elevation is what? I said? 1000 ft? I live at 5 times that, and I'm on the plains. OOooh they were so peeved, hahaha! (it was pretty tho)
And the Avs used to be the Quebec Nordiques. My grandmother was from there, which is a funny coinkydink.
I also grew up in Montrose. :-) And enjoyed Telluride back when it was just a fun little family ski mountain and not a destination spot for everyone and their dog. ;-)
I was born at Denver General in 1958. Now Denver Health. I was born in that little red building right off of 6 the Ave.
I was born in Texas, lived in California, reside in Colorado. I only claim Colorado, not the other two...too full of nutbags. I voted YES to marijuana, haven't even smoked any since 1975. Just don't want The Man telling us what to do...or Oklahoma, or Nebraska. And I'm an Orange-blooded Broncos fan forever. =D
You forgot one, Annie. This one's for you, Donna, when North Denver was "North Denver" and is now called "The Highlands"!
Only if you don't want your house to burn down in the event of a wildland fire. Since we have man made droughts now and the western US is stealing all our water it's a big issue. Fire mitigation is important.
True native when you understand what the Western Slope is. And when we were in our 20's we used to call Telluride skiing as "To Hell You Ride." Good times.
My husband and I were visiting a local architect near KC and I started talking about being from the Western Slope.... His eyes opened wide and he asked if we were from CO. He also was from the Telluride area of CO..... I was raised in Montrose. Unless you're a native, you haven't heard the phrase Western Slope.....
