I'm glade you didn't list my Colorado town. You think Colorado is nice now, back 60 years ago it was heaven. Pop.2.2M. 9 of those 10 towns you listed are on the front range along the I-25 corridor and now that corridor is a suburban hell hole. Pop today 6M and climbing.
Colorado is a wonderful state to live in. Here’s the thing about the towns you mentioned...... If you’re literally not bringing home an income of at least $200,000-$400,000 annually then You’re more than likely not living and thriving in these towns. Great towns indeed, but the average American isn’t thriving in those towns. Aspen??? Just a small condo will cost you millions......
Sometimes as an out of stater Colorado folks don’t like us much. I understand but I’m not someone from a rich state. I come from Oklahoma. I promise Oklahomans aren’t buying all the real-estate in Colorado! This state just has a better atmosphere and is less evangelical compared to Oklahoma.
Except for Aspen - every place on your list is basically a Denver/Boulder/Colorado Springs Suburb... When I lived in Denver in the 80's/90's - most of these places were dumps, and way out in the middle of "nowhere".... I used to drive to Erie to practice MX - because the only thing in Erie - was the MXtrack! Because the Denver area grew so fast and so big - these were the only places it could expand to... and Morrison - really isn't a town - not really.... It's where Red Rocks concert venue is... My fave town in CO - is Steamboat Springs... The best skiing in CO - and not yet "Aspenized"... I currently live in Montrose - and a LOT of people are moving here - from the front range and out of state... About an hour north of Telluride - which I am surprised you skipped... Western Slope Baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I lived in Colorado for years and loved it until it got so crowded and expensive I moved. I go back for visits but I would never move back there. ASPEN number one? That town is the most pompous overpriced town in Colorado. It was then and is worse now. The Colorado that people are moving there to find no longer exists.
I would tell ppl don't move here! it's freezing, summers are short, you'll get altitude sickness, It snows til April, (It did for me while I was replacing my sidewalk....couldn't do it until June, due to rainy month in May) tourists cram the mountains & local roads. I would tell 'em, just pay a visit & go home or some place else. Be careful what you're asking for. The Phoenix metro area is worse due to the influx of ppl bringing their "baggage" with them. Growth isn't always a good thing.
Im surprised he didn't mention the park in Morrison that consists of a road that drives up this huge plateau. As you head up the road there is a cliff along the roadside that is littered with various dinosaur footprints. Huge ones, little ones, and theres even crocodile prints. Apparently it is the remnants of a beach that sat at the edge of a vast inland seaway that was present during the triassic period ( i think).
Bro as soon as you started to talk about your opinion on fracking, I’m so glad that you’re wife talked you into not moving here. The true natives of Colorado are mostly conservatives but the problem is that you Californians hate how screwed up your state is so you leave there and spread your ideology on all of us and now there’s so many of you here that Colorado is becoming California junior and us natives are starting to hate it here...
People telling us not to move to CO was the biggest reason why we did. Lol
Aside from that, we love the scenery and our jobs had locations there so we moved. But I get a kick out of people telling others not to move there like they own the state. That was the deciding factor when choosing a new state to live in.
Damm, you didn’t cover Gunnison Colorado? I lived there for a while. Hiking in the summer. Winter Snow skiing? If your not into skiing you Choices are getting drunk and having sex. Right now 01-24-21 at 23:20 it’s 4* f. Ok got to go this chck half my age is wanting to go another round! 🤷♂️🤗 we aim to please?
