Colorado was declared as a state in 1876 by President Ulysses Grant. It is known as the "Centennial State" because its declaration was one hundred years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It is bordered by Wyoming, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. It is known for its scenery of mountains, rivers, and plains. Colorado has one of the highest elevations and is well known for it. An interesting fact, when the Denver Broncos play in the Mile High Stadium, they have to wear oxygen masks because the air is so thin. Fifty-one out of eighty mountains run through Colorado. The famous Rocky Mountains runs through this state as well. But elevations isn't all that Colorado has; the eastern third part of the state grows corn, hay, potatoes, wheat, and sugar beets.
