State of Happiness...Colorado

Thursday, November 12, 2009

I was watching Regis and Kelly this morning when they mentioned the list of the 'happiest' state to live in. Utah was first and of course Hawaii...then they mentioned Colorado. As a native (almost third generation-my Grandma came over from Italy in 1900 at the age of 6) I wholeheartedly agree. Here are a few samples of the things we have here. These pictures were taken when my sister came out this summer...

The Air Force Academy nestled up against the mountains...

Inside the chapel

This chapel holds space for religious practices of all...Buddhist...Jewish...Cath name a few...

Bishop's Castle

Watch your Step

Casa Bonita Mexican Restaurant with caves and waterfalls and divers....

Mirmont Castle in Manitou Springs. I used to live in an apartment here...along with the ghosts

And the Garden of the Gods....this land was home to the Ute Indians, miners, immigrants...
I've just touched on a few of the 'magic' happy spots here...Be Blessed, my Sparkling Angels! Remember wherever you are is the happiest state...enjoy the myriad miracles!

    I am a native of Colorado. I lived there for 35 years before moving to Atlanta, Colorado is indeed beautiful! If you like skiing and hiking, it's the perfect place. Nothing beats the breathtaking Rockie Mountains. It's the mile high city. I will be going back for Christmas to visit family and I can't wait. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I would recommend visiting. Don't forget those Broncos!!

    I think Colorado is the most beautiful state. I love it more for the pristine high mountains and all their natural beauty. I love the blue skies, constantly sunny days, crisp air, snowy winters and nighttime's continual show of meteors. I miss all that now.
    I had never heard of Bishop Castle. Looks fascinating.

    Interesting information - I'd like to take the hubby traveling through Colorado and the Rockies. He didn't even cross the Mississippi until he was over 40, so we're looking forward to going out west one day. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
