Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Since October 2014, we've been keeping you abreast about the progress of an incredible project being conceived and executed by Chris Harrison and the folks at Videoblend: one-hundred Instagram videos that reveal 100 reasons why Colorado is awesome, issued under the hashtag-friendly moniker AWSMColorado.

Our first collection assembled reasons 100-88, while our second, published this past February, focused on reasons 87-78. And in June, we brought you reasons 77-63.

Now, Harrison and company have reached the halfway point of their video adventure — and to celebrate, they've captured highlights of the first fifty subjects highlighted in a single video.

Continue to see reasons 62-51, followed by the aforementioned round-up clip — and to see more incredible Colorado moments, visit the Videoblend Instagram page.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
