Who needs to travel to J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy land to experience Middle Earth when we can do it right here in Colorado?

With everything from alpine mountains, arid plains, deserts, colossal rock formations, deep canyons, deep forests and all the rivers and lakes, it’s easy to see how someone creative would turn Colorado into a Middle Earth fantasy colony named “Reddish Land.”

Oh Colorado, how we so love your versatility! You can change your name to “Reddish Land” if you want, as long as you never change anything else about this great state.
