According to Wikipedia, the source of all knowledge these days, the Eastern Plains of Colorado are part of the High Plains which are in turn the westernmost part of the Great Plains. It is said that the Eastern Plains of Colorado are semi-arid, receiving very little rainfall throughout the year. M and I timed our trip to the plains to coincide with some of that rainfall. Not intentionally. It just worked out that way.
