Coloradans have shown time and again that we are not defined by tragedies and disasters, but rather by how we stand united to face them and rebuild together as one community. From the first rainfall in September 2013 until the flood subsided, this unprecedented disaster tested our strength. Though this destruction shook us, it did not break us.

From Colorado's earliest days, connecting with wilderness has been part of what defines us as Westerners. As a lifelong outdoorsman and leader of the Colorado Outward Bound School for 10 years, I can attest to the importance of Colorado's wilderness to our economy and our special way of life.

Colorado is home to awe-inspiring public lands and natural treasures. We can thank the Wilderness Act of 1964 for preserving special places like Maroon Bells, the Great Sand Dunes and large swaths of Rocky Mountain National Park. This forward-thinking legislation ensures generations of Coloradans can experience and enjoy these places — and many others across the country — in their natural states.
