Article I of the Colorado Constitution is entitled Boundaries. It sets forth the boundaries of the state of Colorado. It has only one section. Interestingly, despite the fact that it has never been amended, and so retains the original text as approved in 1876, the actual, accepted boundaries of the state differ from those herein described.[1][2]

Article I text

Boundaries

The boundaries of the state of Colorado shall be as follows: Commencing on the thirty-seventh parallel of north latitude, where the twenty-fifth meridian of longitude west from Washington crosses the same; thence north, on said meridian, to the forty-first parallel of north latitude; thence along said parallel, west, to the thirty-second meridian of longitude west from Washington; thence south, on said meridian, to the thirty-seventh parallel of north latitude; thence along said thirty-seventh parallel of north latitude to the place of beginning.[2]
