365 Colorful Facts About Colorado

Colorado is a state unlike any other in the country. With rivers, mountains, plains, and desert, Colorado has it all. The alpenglow sunsets and the high altitude environment can lead to a wonderful vacation as well as a lifetime of explorations in the search of champagne powder. Our wonderful state is filled with interesting history, unique facts, and tons of outdoor activities. Learn a new fact everyday, and get to know our state!


Growing up in Breckenridge, Colorado has always intrigued me. From the skiing, biking, fishing, beautiful sunrises and glorious sunsets, Colorado is a great place to call home. Graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in History in 2007, the story of our state turned into my passion. While in college and a few years after, friends used to always joke that I should write a calendar about the history of Colorado. It was always in the back of my mind, but I was too busy skiing and surfing to put together a calendar. This calendar was my rehabilitation project after suffering a traumatic brain injury overseas. It not only provides fun filled facts to anyone who loves Colorado, but motivation to all who have been affected by serious injury. This calendar is unique; there is nothing else like it.


The 365 Colorful Facts About Colorado 2019 calendar is remarkable in every way. From the plains to the desert, from the San Luis Valley north to Steamboat, the calendar gives you a different fact each day covering the whole state. Each month is a different Colorado themed sepia toned background. Each day is a new fun filled fact, with a picture regarding the information. Here are a few samples to give you a hint of what the calendar looks like:
