Twelve Dozen Things About Colorado
Stories about Colorado could fill an encyclopedia; details behind those stories could fill an entire library. Important dates, famous people, and iconic landmarks are generally well known; but Colorado both as a place and as a home amounts to much more than just these things. Our mountains far exceed the names and elevations of just the “Fourteeners.” Being the “Mother of Rivers” must mean something. And why do some maps show two sets of boundary lines? Each month this year, “Twelve Dozen Things About Colorado” will present 12 things — things you probably don’t know — that tell the stories of Colorado.
