Sitting atop our list of 10 Things We Love About Colorado, number one needs the least explanation of all. We at DRY HQ in Seattle pine for the sun, and when we’re in Colorado it always seems to deliver on its promise of 300 days of sunshine.
While some will refute the state’s official claim of “300 days of sunshine,” it’s less about scientific qualification and more about what the bits of sunshine each day enable one to do. Illuminating landscapes, promoting active lifestyles, helping grow fresh local food: it’s amazing what that big ball of light and vitamin D can do.
So thank you, sun, for making all other things on our list possible. We hope you’ll take an extended summer vacation up to Seattle soon.
