To clarify

“New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.”

Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1
US Constitution

In otherwords, it could happen, but is extremely unlikely as it would require the legislature of Colorado, US legislative branch, and any potential state in which the counties would join.

No senator/state would be willing to grant a new state status, as it would diminish the power of each senator. Colorado will not diminish it's own representation in the house of representatives.

I think what we actually need in this country is two sets of laws. One for urban zones, and one for rural. Two countries existing in one space.
