Treasures of the United States: Colorado

Colorado is the highest state and has more mountains reaching up to 14,000 feet. Her mountain scenery is some of the most beautiful and dramatic in the United States and Colorado is a center for vacationers taking advantage of the pleasant summer climate and the ample supplies of powdered snow in the winter.

The name Colorado is Spanish for red color in reference to the color of the water in the Colorado River and the Rocky Mountain Columbine is the official state flower.

The United States Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel, completed in 1962, is the distinguishing feature of the Cadet Area at the United States Air Force Academy north of Colorado Springs. Originally controversial in its design, the Cadet Chapel has become a classic and highly regarded example of modernist architecture and was named a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 2004.

Colorado is a leader in manufacturing of scientific and medical instruments and is also a major agricultural and mining state.
