Fifty Reasons to Be Thankful for Colorado

Thanksgiving makes us all sentimental about our home state, and we felt it was our duty to show all the transplants what to really be thankful for in Colorado. With everything from landscapes to sunsets, fixies to craft beer, mountains to Broncos fans, city skylines to street-art...and legal cannabis, of course, we pretty much have it made. Here are fifty photographic reasons — the equivalent of 50,000 words! — to appreciate Colorado this Thanksgiving. 





KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
