Overview

Excerpt from Colorado the Magnificent

It is not the wandering instinct, nor merely the desire to go somewhere and the love of change. It is not in the majority of cases even failing health. It is because the name "Colorado" covers the most remarkable scenic panorama in the civilized world, and at the same time the most accessible.

It is difficult, to begin with, to realize even the ex tent of this piece of scenery. Colorado contains 104, 500 square miles. It is as big as all New England with the great State of Illinois added, and two-thirds of this vast domain is mountains.

Real mountains. The American citizen who has not seen these, and whose observations of mountain scenery have been confined to the groups and chains that lie east of the Mississippi, does not yet know his country's capacities in the field of grandeur. All that claim the name of mountains in Maine, New Hampshire, Virginia and the Carolinas will seem to him as pretty hills after once he has beheld the Titanic masses that rise and lean against the sky in Colorado.
