I was born in upstate New York, grew up mostly in California and Illinois, and moved here 20 years ago. My kids were 1 and 4 when we moved here, so they might as well be natives.

Native? Nope. Wasn't born here

But... My grandma's family were original settlers in the north end of South park. The Baker Family. They would send fresh trout and animal meet on the trains back to Denver. Apparently they killed the last wild Buffalo as requested by the Colorado State Govenor and now it is in the Denver Museum for Natural History. I had the priviledge of going to see the homestead last year.

I sure do love this state though.

Not a native but have lived here over half my life. I was born in Germany and lived in Japan (military bases) until we moved here when I was in junior high. Since becoming an adult and having a choice of where I live, it's been a happy and easy decision to make to not leave this beautiful state!

I am so blessed to have been born and raised in this wonderful state! Lived in Fort Collins my entire life. Couldn't even leave the Colorado mountains for college! I've been to 47of the 50 states and all are beutiful in their own right and I have great memories from each of them, but for me, nothing compares to Colorado. I am humbly grateful to be able to enjoy the beauty of God's creation daily!

I'm a proud native Born in Denver, raised in Broomfield. Lived away for fifteen years all over the midwest until I decided to come home. So glad to be back.
Some of it's majic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way.

Nope, but getting closer every year.

So far I am 42/48ths native; once I pass the 90% mark maybe I can be an honorary native :lol:

I thought there were more Michigan natives like me on this forum - maybe they just haven't chimed in? Anyway I definitely am more Coloradoan than Michigander? (Are those even words?)

Glacier Paul,

Thanks for the history. I have often wondered how the lakes got such different names being so close to one another. I can only imagine how determined one would have to be to create a lake at 1200 feet and Caroline is even higher. I have been visiting that area since the late sixties and have always considered it one of my favorite places on earth. I love to stand on the dam of Steuart and look out across to Mt Evans.
