There's no need for a long diatribe about Colorado's beauty, 300+ sunny days, low humidity and all those other wonderful attributes that attract millions of visitors annually. Please enjoy these drone photos! - Don
The nice thing is we actually get 300 sunny days in Colorado. However, the joke is that we get all four seasons here- sometimes in the same day. Photo at left shows rain coming toward Reuters-Hess Reservoir in Parker.
(They're tough, even in the winter!)
Check out the foliage from the Grand Mesa area.

Built in 1908, this Arkansas River Bridge near Salida is a landmark from another era.

If you see burros wandering the street and approaching tourists for treats, the chances are you're in Cripple Creek, CO. Once a huge gold-mining area, Cripple Creek is currently famous as a gaming town that has a variety of events, festivals and attractions. One of them is a narrow-gauge railroad, which offers rides in open-air cars.
In the center of Victor is the charming Victor Hotel. It's iconic, old-fashioned lobby and elevators takes lodgers back to another era. (Yes, I've stayed there and it's cool!)
Just up the hill from the main street in Cripple Creek is the famous Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine. Visitors can descend 1,000 feet below the surface and experience the mining experience.
As you enter the town, the city hall is before your eyes. It is a wonderful example of how drone photos can really show off classic architecture that resonates beauty from another era.
Hidden off Highway 67, historic Victor has a great mining heritage, as shown by these drone photos.
