Colorado is a state in the Rocky Mountains region of the United
States of America. The highest peaks of the United States portion of the
Rockies are here, as are the highest peaks of the "Basin and Range" province
and a number of other natural marvels.
Colorado's population was 4,301,261 in the 2000 census, and the state's population
is growing, particularly in the large towns along the Front Range where the prairie
and mountains meet. These towns include the capital, Denver, and Colorado Springs,
Boulder, Longmont, Loveland and Fort Collins. Many of the residents of Colorado migrated from other states so being a "Colorado Native" is a point of pride with many people.
