Moving to Colorado
Colorado is beautiful to behold. The Rocky Mountains, 38 state parks, 11 national forests, and 222 state wildlife areas make Colorado a stunning wonderland and not just in the winter. Major industries are agriculture, mining and tourism � yes, skiing is a major attraction. Colorado will take your breath away. The iconic song, "America the Beautiful," was penned atop Pikes Peak overlooking Colorado Springs. Over 400,000 people ascend Pike's Peak every year.
Colorado became the 38th state in 1876. With a population of 4.3 million people, Colorado ranks 24th among the states, and is 8th overall in size with an area of 104,100 square miles. The scenery and the mountains are not the only awe-inspiring feature of Colorado. Mesa Verde features an elaborate four-story city carved in the cliffs by the Ancestral Pueblo people between 600 and 1300 A.D. No one can explain the mystery of the sudden disappearance of its thousands of inhabitants. Once you arrive in Colorado, you won�t want to go anywhere else.
