The 99 Most Scenic Places in Colorado (Supposedly)

When we first decided to move to Colorado I stumbled across this article and thought it was interesting.

Some of the places I definitely agree with in terms of them being deserving of their ranking, others I feel less strongly about. There are also definitely some really beautiful places we have been to that did not make this list.

Nonetheless, it has been fun to track our progress towards seeing all of these places! The ones I have added our pictures to, mean we have been there.
