Colorado | WPLN News – Nashville Public Radio

It is the 38th state admitted to the union and endowed with a little bit of everything – 58 peaks over 14,000 feet high; the largest flat mountain in the world; the highest paved road, tallest suspension bridge, and tallest sand dune in the US; and the subject of some great songs. We celebrate the bluegrassic wonders of the Centennial State, Colorado.
