Featured CMC Press Book

Coloring Colorado

by Jesse Crock

Coloring Colorado features drawings of some of the state’s iconic peaks, such as Crestone Needle, Lone Eagle Peak, Mount of the Holy Cross, and the Maroon Bells. There are pastoral scenes with wildflowers and aspen trees as well as historical scenes. And there are fun drawings like the much-loved Blue Bear at the Denver Convention Center. For outdoor adventure lovers, there is mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and more! This 8.5" x 11" coloring book is fun for anyone from age 3 to 93. While many people will want Coloring Colorado for themselves, it also makes a wonderful gift.

To order a copy, please visit our store or call 303-279-3080.
