Colorado – the amazing state in the heart of the Wild West
Only when you are in this state and you navigate along its roads can really understand the etymology of its name, which refers not only to the river of the same name, which originates in this region, but most of all, because of the incredible color tonalities of rocks that characterize most of this American state. In fact, that is what means “Colorado” in Spanish.
Fans of colorful landscapes and magnificent environments will enjoy the visit to Colorado, which is an ideal place for a trip filled with adventures in contact with the wild nature, plenty of opportunities for entertainment and spectacular places to explore.
From a geographical point of view, Colorado has western borders with Utah, and southern ones with New Mexico and Oklahoma. From the north, its neighbors are Nebraska and Wyoming, and from the east – Kansas. The capital of the state is Denver, which is a typical American-style city, where you can also find characteristic rocky landscapes. In particular, here you can see the giant Rocky Mountains, and more adventurous travelers will be able to go camping in the various valleys that are rich in this area. Throughout the state there are 4 national parks, which can be noted among the most beautiful ones in the United States. Be sure to see the Great Sand Dunes and the Black Gunnison Canyon.
