Description


Colorado is full of fascinating and often humorous stories of strange places, bizarre events, intriguing history, and colorful characters:
  • Colorado has the highest paved road in North America; the road to Mt. Evans climbs an amazing 14,258 feet above sea level
  • Mike the Headless Chicken Day is celebrated in the town of Fruita each year to remember the rooster that lived for 18 months without a head
  • Loveland is home to the Valentine Re-mailing Program, where hundreds of thousands of love letters are stamped with romantic prose before being directed to their intended recipients
  • Every March, Nederland holds Frozen Dead Guy Days in honor of deceased Grandpa Bredo Morstoel, whose remains are still being kept cool in a shed full of dry ice
  • In Logan County, it is illegal for any man to kiss a woman while she's asleep
  • Each year Manitou Springs holds the Great Fruitcake Toss using GPS technology to ensure distance accuracy
  • The folks in Florissant host a mock election that is more truthful than most--only jackasses need run; in July 2005, a donkey named Paco Bell clopped away with the honorable title of town mayor
And so much more
