Reenact The Famous John Denver Song In The Rocky Mountains Of Colorado

While the official state song of Colorado is “Where the Columbines Grow” by Dr. Arthur John Fynn, native Coloradans have an unofficial tune that we prefer, which is – of course – “Rocky Mountain High” by John Denver. Written and recorded in 1972, “Rocky Mountain High” was penned after Denver’s move to Aspen, which is where he discovered his love of the Rocky Mountains and the state of Colorado. Do you want to re-live this Americana classic for yourself? Here is how you can:
