After the rise of urbanization, legalization and Instagram the secrets of our state were set free. From the outside, Colorado was once seen as a winter ski destination and not much else. Now, riddled with cranes and flooded with brake lights we’ve seen stressful changes to our home.
With the population influx we’ve seen crime rates, commute times and housing prices skyrocketed. Many Coloradans couldn’t afford the new cost of living and were forced to move from their home and family. For those of us who stayed, Colorado slowly began to feel less like Colorado.
BEFORE THE ZOO remembers where Colorado came from and reminds everyone now here of its roots.
