Canon City, Colorado

October 20, 2020

If I am not mistaken, "Canon City" is pronounced "Canyon City" in these parts. Is that what the "~" above the "n" does for you? And I think I have already discussed how "Ouray" is pronounced "Uray" and how Colorado lost an "e" in the spelling of "Ridgway." Those are the funnies I have come "acrost" so far. 🤪
