Okay, Colorado, put your visor back on and calm down. Utah, stop kicking up that cloud of dust. Texas, you’re big, but can you handle Wyoming? Rhode Island, are you there?
We have debated ski towns and we have wrestled over cities. But what about states? These 50 independent entities form much of our identities and set much of the tone for how we perceive ourselves as adventurers. Think: Colorado bros vs. Utah desert rats vs. California surfers vs. Wyoming cowboys. State boundaries are big enough to encompass worlds of their own, dark enough to wrap you in homie pride. Which one will rule them all?
