I have lived in Colorado for my entire adult life, since 1975. I love it here, plenty of blue sky and sunshine. And virtually no humidity, a definite plus after growing up in the Midwest. We have a climate where you can enjoy the great out of doors all twelve months of the year, personally I much prefer summer! Although I live in Fort Collins on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains, I try to get up into the mountains as often as I can. Myself, my children and my grandchildren all enjoy hiking and riding horses in the mountains.
