On Wednesday, Colorado turned 142 years old! Since its 141st birthday, it’s unclear how many miles we traveled around the state for our Unique 2 Colorado segment — but rest assured, it’s in the tens of thousands.

During that time we visited tons of interesting places. I wanted to share a couple of them with you:
