What makes Colorado Colorado? That's what "Making Colorado," the state's new branding mission announced yesterday, wants to determine -- and it's set up a website where you can offer your own suggestions that will help determine the state's new brand.

Fresh off the annual orgy of niceness that is the Best of Denver, we decided to do some burnishing of our own. Here's our early top ten list of What Makes Colorado Colorado.

I love driving down Highway seven and coming up over the bridge of I-25 and seeing those big beautiful mountains just on the otherside. Those have been my compass for many, many years as well. I wouldn't know where west was if I didn't have those mountains LOL!
