List O Items Update

>Nearly two months ago I posted a list of all the fun things I want to accomplish in Colorado this year. Here is an update. Plain text indicates that it is still "to do", bold is "have done" and italics is "missed it". There are a few things on this list which I am sure we may never get to. For example, I despise Colorado Springs and Pueblo. They are quite literally the armpits of Colorado and while there are "hidden gems" in and around the area, taking a day's trip may not even be worth it. Do you have a list of things to do in your state? Share it!
