15 Most Beautiful Spots in Colorado

Just like Conde Nast’s “13 Photos of the Most Beautiful Island in the World,” another click-bait article kept circulating throughout the summer of 2015 – The 15 Most Beautiful Spots in Colorado.

Now, lists are subjective and of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I get that. But that being said, that article is just plan wrong. It’s a piece that is haphazardly put together by someone who ‘Googled’ (or ‘Pinterested’… is that a thing?) a couple poor quality pictures, didn’t attribute any of them to the photographer, slapped an authoritative title on it to attract clicks, and then paid Facebook for some advertising. And it really, really irritated me…

SO, in no particular order, here are the 15 Most Beautiful Spots in Colorado.

*And by “most beautiful,” I simply mean “better spots that I’ve been to compared to that other terrible list.”*
