They are on Federal land, supported by Federal income taxes and not the state of Colorado. So, the Texans have just as much of a right to hike them as Colorado residents.
Not sure anyone is disputing this fact. :-/

That doesn't give them carte blanche to act like they own the place and generally be loud/brash idiots when they're here.

You can hose them off and they may be a little cleaner but you can't expect them to act civilized just because you washed the sand off.

Texas is all clay. You never get clean there.

San Antonio, Austin, Big Bend, Guadalupe Mountains, Caprock Canyons (don't mountain bike this when it's wet!) and maybe spots on the coast are cool though.
