Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials have dubbed today Fresh Air Friday and are urging residents “to take some time this Thanksgiving weekend to explore the outdoors and make new memories with the people you love.”
New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham tweeted out an announcement today inviting people to “join us all around our beautiful state to #OptOutside.”
