Colorado is a state of the United States.

Colorado's Front Range

Denver sucks and while it can be difficult there are ways out. West of Denver treated me pretty good though.

Other Major Cities on the Front Range include: Colorado Springs, Boulder, and Fort Collins

Western Colorado

Very easy: US. 50 from Salida to Grand Junction (gets a little harder once you hit the Utah border, carry water)

Very easy: Rt. 135 from Gunnison to Crested Butte

Easy to Moderate: along 24 and 285 north of Salida

Difficult: 92 and 133 between Carbondale and Delta (Low Traffic)

Easy: 550 Montrose to Durango

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 dont get dropped off around Bunea Vista or Canon City. There are prisons in the area and you are likely to be stranded for long periods.
