For those not already in the know, allow us to introduce you to Fuck Yeah Colorado!, a tumblr site that celebrates Our Fair State's beauty and quirks with equal enthusiasm.
Look below to count down ten shots that prompted us to declare, "Fuck Yeah Colorado!"

The longest city street in the country seems to go on forever in this gorgeous vintage shot. 9. Colt & Gray, Denver
That dreamcatcher needs to be a lot larger to catch all this dreamy scenery. 7. Aspen Police Department, Late 1970s
FYC notes that "this photo depicts three brand new 1979 Saab 900 GLE Combi Coupes for the Aspen Police Department," whose members seem like stars of an ultra-hip TV cop drama. We'd watch that!
