Nyle DiMarco’s cowboy hat is making us want to visit Colorado

Written by gaytourism

Nyle DiMarco, the sexually fluid model, has been getting into the spirit of things in Colorado this week.

The Dancing With the Stars champ posed in a classic 1980 Ford truck while visiting the tiny town of Breckenridge.

Found in Summit County, it’s a popular ski destination with fewer than 5,000 permanent residents. It’s also the perfect base for outdoor adventures in the summer months.

The star also donned a cowboy hat, a pair of overalls and a Levi’s denim jacket for another shot, looking rather like the lost love child of Jack Twist and Del Mar from Brokeback Mountain.

(Even though the film and book are set in Wyoming, and the film was actually shot in Canadian Rockies…)

Nyle grew up in Frederick, Maryland. As well as a model and actor, he is known for being a tireless deaf activist.

The star often posts pics of his travels on Instagram.

But now he’s spotlighting the are five fast facts about the The Centennial State, called as such because it became a state in 1876, 100 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence…
