Geopolitical anomaly in the US (Colorado, no less)

Posted by Dick on 06/13/2003 09:15:56 AM

When the Territory of Colorado was either:

- established, or

- made into a state...

...between the mapping and the paperwork, they made the town of Breckenridge, Colorado a part of the US for every day of the year except the Fourth of July. They have fun with that fact every year. And, there used to (and may still) be a sign at the city limits saying "The Kingdom of Breckenride Welcomes You".

So, be sure to work that into your agenda, OK? There are plenty of good beers, there, which are made even more impressive by the fact that you are consuming them in the thin air of 9,600 feet above sea level!

Cheers,

High-Altitude Dick
