Where is the West Coast?

Now this is the West Coast!
Just when I think that the "average American" understands basic US geography, I am proved wrong.   Earlier this year I had to clarify Where in the World is Tanzania?  This morning on the radio there was a concert promotion for an event here in Denver next month.  One of the selling points was First Time on the West Coast!  

I hate to break it to them, but someone needs to:  Denver is NOT the West Coast.  Between here and there is the majority of Colorado then Utah then Nevada then California.  From personal experience it is a long long drive.  The West Coast has the Sierra Nevadas.  We have the Rockies.  The West Coast has famous redwoods.  We have famous aspens.  Squaw Valley vs Vail.  Ocean vs Reservoir.  When I moved to Colorado from Indiana 6 years ago someone wished me "good luck on the West Coast." 

If only they knew how far I still have to go.

We don't have these kind of lions in Colorado
