DENVER — Colorado tourism is on the rise, but the state is still trying to catch up with other states.

State tourism officials estimate a record 60 million visitors last year spent about $17 billion in Colorado.

The 2 percent increase last year compares with a 9 percent increase nationally.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/kuh98ry ), officials believe weak spring snow or wildfires limited last year's increase.
