因为科罗拉多州于美国立国满100周年时的1876年添加联邦,成为美国的第38州,故科罗拉多又名「百年之州」(Centennial State)。提起科罗拉多时,大多数人都会将联想到洛矶山脉(Rocky Mountains)及无数高于14,000英呎的山巅。而科罗拉多一字源自于一个西班牙字,意即红色或发红的,指称该州的地层颜色。时至今日,科罗拉多以其广大的牛牧场、成千上亩的农地及白雪覆盖的山脉闻名于世,而这片覆满白雪的山是进行冬季运动的绝佳地点。科罗拉多的首府是丹佛,而它的州花是落矶山耧斗菜。


Called the "Centennial State," because it became the 38th state when the U.S. turned 100 in 1876, Colorado is most closely associated with the Rocky Mountains and has numerous peaks over 14,000 feet. The state's name comes from a Spanish word meaning "red" or "ruddy," the color of much of the state's terrain. Today, Colorado is known for its vast cattle ranges, agricultural acreage, and snow-covered mountains that are ideal for winter sports. Its capital is Denver and state flower is the Rocky Mountain columbine.
