'''Colorado''' is a state of the [[United States of America|United States]].
 
== Public transport ==
The traveler passing through Denver will be wise to note the presence of several Mexican bus companies. More affordable, more comfortable, more reliable, and with noteably nicer co-passengers than the Dirty Dog (greyhound), these companies can take you to Kansas City, New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, Southern California, and of course, Mexico. If you've got a few bucks and you don't feel like thumbing your way out of suburban sprawl, head over the area between Welton and Champa between 19th and 22nd streets. Autobuses Los Paisanos, Los Limosines, Autobuses Americanos and others can get you to Mexico for 50-60 dollars.
 
There is a bus that runs between Fort Collins and Loveland with a policy which allows you to ride free if you claim to be 17 or younger.

== Western Colorado ==
Very easy: US HGWY 6 over Loveland Pass for back-country skiers (Only in the winter, and only to the top of the mountain). Make sure to find a large pull-off area on a straight stretch of road.
'''Note''': When hitchiking in Western Colorado don't get dropped off around Buena Vista or and Canon City. There are prisons in the area and you are likely prison areas which tend to be stranded for long periodsmore difficult to hitchhike around
== Experiences ==
:''I would not hesitate to claim Colorado as the easiest state in America to hitchhike in and I have been to most of the states. Anywhere west of the front range is incredibly easy. If you are like me you will be wishing wish people wouldn't pick would stop picking you up so fast so you could have more time to absorb the scenery. Buena Vista was a great place to hitch I have been through, I got a ride within 10 minutes out of there after camping for most highways in Colorado and the night. The longest I ever waited in Colorado (other than a 4.5 hour wait in Greeley and a 1.5 hour wait in Pueblo) was probably about 20 minutes.'' - [[User:Thewindandrain|Thewindandrain]] 0:17:26, 6 March 2012 (CET)
