Known as the 'Bi-polar' state 'cause one minute it's the next it's cold. A lot of tourist attractions and things to do all over the place. Generally nice people and people who actually WORK for what they have. Lots of skiing and snowboarding in the mountains. The capital is Denver with Elitches, as people in colorado call it, and Casa Bonita, an awesome place to go for atmosphere (although the food isn't very good). Colorado Springs, another large city, is less crowded and business-y than denver. More open space with parks, hiking, pikes peak, and Garden of the Gods. Lots of newer, more relaxed churches where the dress code is whatever you wear the rest of the week. Although Colorado doesn't have a beach, it makes up for that!
Amy: I just moved to Colorado.
Macy: That must suck!
Amy: Actually it doesn't! Everyone says bad things about it but it's actually really awesome!
the actual town in colorado that southpark is based on
if i lived in fairplay I'd kidnap someone for a week to go to casa bonita too
Espanol for "Great River"
One of several rivers where the gringoes dump their shit into before reaching Mexico. All rivers that are shared by the Yanks and Mexicans flow from the EUA south into Mexico. In the case of the Colorado River, the Californians, Nevadans, and Arizonans pretty much take everything of value out of it before it flows south of the border.
Every year, thousands of illegal migrant workers wade across the Rio Grande and back for starving wages and the constant threat of being poisoned by pestacides and other leathal substances. They're the reason the Yanks can get such cheap meat and produce at the local supermarket.
