Synopsis by Alice Day
Those who have never been to Colorado may be surprised to find the many attractions that are part of this scenic state. Its terrain includes snowy mountain peaks, sand dunes, rivers, and grasslands, and its ski slopes draw avid skiers from all over the world. Spirit of America: Colorado -- The Grand Tour looks at the seasonal changes, as aspens change color in fall, and valleys offer spring wildflowers. In Mesa Verde National Park, the homes of the cliff-dwelling Anasazis can be seen, constructed 700 years ago. For people who like a Western lifestyle, there are ranches, rodeos, and buffalo on the plains.
