      1. I wasn’t referring to stand by me for Colorado, just in general. Thanks for the link. The stand by me locations are great, would love to walk/run that bridge!

      2. Oh I see haha sorry. Thank you! If you do, I’d be happy to share your photo(s) on this post and credit them for you. I’ll also look into finding more locations in the Colorado area for you.

      3. Only one I know of is, another in my top 5, dumb and dumber. Have a picture of myself with the moon landing newspaper from the bar scene
