Depends on summer or winter. Summer we hit 80s-90s on the eastern plains, and sometimes the rare 100 (on a dry summer). And sometimes summer starts later and we can have 50s and 60s in June (and it has gotten cooler then that too) It's a tad cooler in the mountains with the shade of the forests an…d the elevation. Sometimes depending on where the jet stream is we can get wind storms lasting weeks that reach about 45-75mph (that's not gusts) and that cools things down a bit. *many people are surprised we have such strong winds in such a mountainous state, but we do* _________ anyways for the winter we can have 70s for the winter when the sun is out and we don't have a low pressure system over us. Yet we can also have some winter days where we reach a high of 14 in the day time. Last winter we had a three week run of the temperature only reaching about 10 where I live. Main rule is winter cold, cool, and sometimes hot; summer hot, hotter, sometimes cool the further east you go the better chances of higher temps, the further west the cool it gets. Yet it doesn't always follow that way because the mountains direct how our weather is. (MORE)

Colorado was shaped primarily by volcanic activity and severe erosion of land formations by wind and water. A great part of the state was once a seabed. The wind formed the shape of the Great Plains and Sand Dunes. The Rockies and other rock formations were once much larger, the result of the Great …Divide and other movements in the plates, and were worn into their current shape and size by wind and water. If you mean the state boundary, Colorado was one of the states thrown into the Union to equal sides out and the shape mostly has to do with political boundaries and the shapes of the older states and territories owned by other countries.

Colorado, which joined the union as the 38th state in 1876, is America's eighth largest state in terms of land mass. Located in the Rocky Mountain region of the western United States, the state's abundant and varied natural resources attracted the ancient Pueblo peoples and, later, the Plains Indian…s. First explored by Europeans in the late 1500s (the Spanish referred to the region as "Colorado" for its red-colored earth), the area was ceded to the U.S. in 1848 with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo that ended the Mexican-American War (1846-48). In 1858, the discovery of gold in Colorado attracted new settlers. During the Plains Indian Wars (1860s-80s), Colorado's wild frontier was the scene of intense fighting between Native Americans and white settlers. In the 21st century, Colorado continues to rely on its natural resources as well as agriculture and tourism to sustain its economy. (MORE)
