Colorado is a gorgeous state, from the Maroon Bells to the Garden of the Gods.
So when we launched our annual photo contest, we expected to receive loads of stunning images. And our readers didn't disappoint.
Nearly 500 entries were received for Quintessential Colorado. The readers picked one winner (Carrie Morningwake) and The Gazette's staff picked another (Larry Holjencin). Each receives a $250 gift card to Best Buy.
