Happy 140th Birthday Colorado!

On August 1, 1876, Colorado became the 38th state. Colorado is ranked 8th in size and 22nd in population. The highest point is Mount Elbert, the lowest is Arikaree River. While many are familiar with the Blue Spruce as our state tree, and the Rocky Mountain Columbine as our flower, did you know we have an official state tartan?
