About This Item
This series of “snow” travel bugs each commemorates a cold US city. I am not sure how one determines the coldest US cities in the winter. Does one rank the record lows, lowest monthly averages or lowest winter averages? Many of the cities would appear on all three lists. Rather than try to assign a ranking, I will simply include some cities or hamlets from each of the criteria. Regardless of ranking, we have to acknowledge that all of the locations identified in this series are really, really cold places in winter.
Maybell, Colorado is in the rugged high country of northwest Colorado. It lies about an hour's drive from the entrance to Dinosaur National Monument, one of the largest known deposits of dinosaur fossils anywhere in the world. It's also home to Colorado's coldest temperature on record: 61 degrees below zero on Feb. 1, 1985.
