Colorado

The name, Colorado, comes from the Spanish word for the color red, and it is an apt moniker for the state thanks to the deep red rock formations found in various areas. They’ve even formed a well-known national amphitheater just outside of the Denver-Boulder area. Most people associate the state with the Rocky Mountains, and the chain does take up most of the western area of Colorado. However, the state also has a variety of different geographic terrains, including plains and mesas.

Colorado is bordered by Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arizona. It is one of the states in the famous “four corners” to the southwest.
