DENVER -- Colorado is booming, so much so that records are being shattered as each week passes. As such, it's easy to miss headlines.
Here are a few of the top records that Colorado crushed between 2015 and 2016.
1.) Hotels are packed full, with tourists footing a huge bill for Colorado residents.
Tourists helped set a 77 percent occupancy rate over the past year, spending millions in the City of Denver.
2.) Colorado sees green as the state's pot consumption rises.
At over $122 million in sales in the month of July alone, pot consumers -- both medical and recreational -- helped shatter a record in July.
3.) Enrollment skyrockets at Colorado universities.
Most schools in Colorado saw enrollment bumps, but CU Boulder and CSU each saw record years.
4.) Things have gotten...well, gusty.
Winds set a record in Colorado in 2016, gusting to 148 miles per hour on Monarch Pass.
5.) Hikers get into trouble on mountaintops.
2015 saw a record number of hikers require rescue from first responders, but rescue teams anticipated an even greater number in 2016.
