DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - I've been many places in this country (road trips are a favorite pastime of mine).
I've seen through the striking red sandstone arches of Utah, explored the vegetation-filled trails of Hawaii, strolled the pristine beaches of California and much more.
But, if you ask me, none of that holds a candle to the towering peaks, crisp air, colorful landscape and peaceful serenity Colorado has to offer. I mean, wasn't the whole "purple mountain majesties" line pretty much written to describe the Rockies?
So imagine my surprise when I looked at a recent Thrillist report titled, "All 50 States, Ranked by Their Beauty" and didn't find the Centennial State in the No. 1 spot.
