Here are 10 ways that Coloradans show off their Colorado-ness without knowing it.

I agree with all but number 2. I am a Colorado Native and I do not wera sandals or flip flops in the winter or in the mountains. I am not a stupid person. The shorts started with high school kids and most adults do not wear them in cold weather. It's the transplants that do that, thinking it makes them natives.


I have all those things and do all those things and I just want to live in Colorado .. Ready to move from the flat lands.


Cute article. I'm a fourth generation Coloradoan and I don't do any of those things. But it's really fun to read what others might do. 😊


I'm also 4th generation native, and don't do any of these things. I think it's a list of what people do that have moved here lol. Darn out of staters [wink]


You forgot the Audi allroad. 🤣


I definitely do the last one. I have a serious addiction to the Colorado outdoors.
