Happy birthday, Colorado!

On August 1, 1876, president Ulysses S. Grant signed a proclamation admitting Colorado as a state. That means it is our 143rd birthday, and as you can see from this photo professional photographer Noah Wetzel took, we're looking GOOD!

Cyndi Marlowe, another professional photographer, caught the profusion of wildflowers blooming:

While Shannon Lukens found a burst of wildflowers on the Panorama Trail on Buffalo Pass:

Betsy Schwartz got the color of wildflowers in the green of Rabbit Ears Pass:

And Larry Pierce found endless wildflowers in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area:

No matter where you look right now, it looks like nature is celebrating with Colorado!
