About Colorado: Northeast Region
Bordering Wyoming, Nebraska and Kansas, the Northeast is multi-faceted. The area spans the rapidly urbanizing Interstate 25 corridor, with its focus on technology and clean energy, to one of the most productive farming and ranching regions in the country. This section of the state contains not only the beauty of the mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park, but the stark openness of the Eastern Plains over which the pioneers traveled to find their fortunes. The history and toughness of these settlers are celebrated in the numerous festivals, fairs, museums and rodeos found throughout the region. Now dotted with wind turbines frequently surrounded by cattle, the region typifies the combination of industries that make Colorado successful and is home to two universities, three community colleges and Northeastern Junior College.

Colorado has repeatedly broken the "most destructive fire in state history" record over the last several years, from the High Park and Waldo Canyon fires of 2012 to the Black Forest Fire of 2013. This cycle of increasingly destructive fires has made it clear that the question is not if, but when, we’ll have another catastrophic megafire.
