Nice set. That's a crazy runaway truck ramp. There all over the place in East Tennessee, but I've never seen one that long or steep, but I've never driven out west, just flown.

Colorado is gorgeous.

I designed the store on the right hand side of this picture (The Territory Ahead).

Very nice pictures, jeremai! Thanks for sharing.

Colorado must be one of the prettiest states in the US. I´d like to visit it, of course. I had heard about Breckenridge as a famous ski resort. That truck ramp in your pictures is impressive!

I´ve liked those pretty houses in Boulder. And that Starbucks in Breckenridge is very nice too. By the way, Denver must be very nice.

Love those landscapes!

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

Nice pictures. Boulder looks different than other have shown it. I guess I'm used to seeing the contemporary architecture in the CU area.

You made it pretty close to my place off Pine. Nice comprehensive set. I'm always curious to see how foreigners look at Colorado. Nice set.

I love this state- the deep blue of the skies, the beauty of the mountains, the fresh high altitude air, the people, the beautiful architecture in every town. This only makes me more excited for my move there in a few years.

My dad worked at Coors for almost 30 yrs and I worked there as a summer hire to pay for college, btw since Coors is part of Miller and Moslen the Golden plant now brews the most Miller MGD of all the Miller/Coors/Moslen plants.

I love the diversity of places you've visited. Beautiful pictures, stunning scenery, and great towns. I especially love the VW bus. Thank you!

Thanks for the kind comments everyone. Gothamite and NovaCJ, you're right about the blue skies and the light. I've been using the same camera for 8 years but nowhere else have I taken pictures with that kind of light and colour!

Amazing photo set. Breckenridge was my favorite town to go to when I lived in Denver. Golden was a cool town as well. Never was a fan of Denver burbs, but the city it's self and all the towns you visited is what makes Colorado great.
