Colorado Cities With Weird Names You May Not Know About
Sure, everyone else is getting a good giggle out of us when we say ‘Poudre’ but these real Colorado city names also give us a little laugh. Honorable mention: ‘Crested Butte.’
Yep, there is a place called ‘Dinosaur.’ Just… Dinosaur.
At least the name is fitting, though. According to the National Park Service, you can camp in Dinosaur, and check out real fossils. Pretty cool.
Ah, a city that gives my long last name a run for its money. You’ve likely driven right through Downieville-Lawson-Dumont on I-70 while heading up to the slopes, and had no idea.
Not only is ‘Hooper’ a fun-to-say name, but the town in the San Luis Valley has its own UFO watch tower… because, who doesn’t?
I’m sorry but do people just bust out in early 2000s hits like ‘In the End’ and ‘Numb’ every time they say where they are from? Because I would.
Maybe it’s just like, really safe there? Oh, it’s not? Well OK. That is deceiving.
Hmmmmm. Hmmmmm….. This either sounds like a cute animal… or a word that I shouldn’t say on the air.
The 600-person city spans less than 200 acres, so I guess it deserves a cute little name (but something about it still sounds wrong to me).
