    Kinda weird how happy it makes me to see others enjoying Colorado. Far too many people who live take it for granted. I never do. As a Native I determined to always notice, and appreciate this magical State I live in. So glad you are enjoying it too.

      I’ve pretty much covered the entire state now, so I think i have a really good feel for the places I want to revisit. The San Juan mountain region is just awesome, as is the ski towns west of Denver. Those are the two areas I’d consider living in outside of Colorado Springs.

      Other places like Grand Junction, though, EWWWWWWWW. Way too Utah-y for me with its ugly backdrop of sandy, flatheaded mountains. Aspen was also a letdown like I suspected it would be, fit for the uber rich snow bunnies who fly in, but for me. I did like Carbondale though, and think I would go there for sightseeing since it’s not much further out west.

      Putting it all together, the San Juan mountains, Summit County west of Denver, and Rocky Mountain Park including Estes Park and Grand Lake, is where I plan to make a point of visiting regularly whenever I can. Oh and the Black Canyons and the Sand Dunes as well. :-D
