    Rocky Mountain High

    I haven't been there for years, but I still have a love for it.  I used to like to go up in the mountains to watch the hangglidders or paraglidders.  I thought maybe one day I'd try hangglidding.  But alas, now I feel old and not physically fit enough. Anybody out...

    Our Family's Colorado Experience

    I had traveled from Longview, WA to Lake Charles, LA, where my husband was living at the time. We lived there briefly before moving to a small Texas town to be closer to his job. During this time Hurricanes Rita and Katrina passed through, both going different directions in a...

    I Love Fort Collins

    I'm not from CO either and I don't currently live there.  I have traveled there several times for vacations and I would love to live there.  Unfortunately because of the child custody agreement between myself and my son's father, I am unable to move out of the state...

    Once And Future Resident

    My father has lived in Aurora since I was a child, and I was blessed to live in Colorado for a few years as an adult. I have always loved the mountains, the open air, and the natural parks. I remember my first time going up the Manitou springs trail, thinking I was going to die...

    Don't Know Why.

    I've never been there in my life.  I've just always had the desire to go there.  It's so beautiful.  The surroundings look amazing from the pictures I've seen. Seems like a good place to relax.

    I Wasn't Born There, But It's My Home

    I first moved to Colorado when I went on the exchange program during college. I loved it so much I transferred to college there and graduated with only one year left! I lived there for five years and it was probably the best time of my life. I miss it terribly. I had to move back...

    Want to

     Last week, I met a police officer in Beringen, Belgium, who travelled to the American Southwest with his wife. One of the states they hit was Colorado. Although I was born and raised in the U.S., I have never been there. I asked him how he enjoyed it. He said, "It's a...

    ...Born In The Wrong State...

    I was born and raised in New York City..and now live in the suburbs. I HATE it here. It doesn't "speak" to me. I used to think that I would never leave New York. Ever. Then, when I turned about sixteen, I got a severe case of wanderlust. I just felt I had to be elsewhere...

    Heavenly Mountains

    Denver, Colorado is my favorite place in the entire world. I love the skiing and snowboarding. I love it year round however with the spring flowers and the odd looking muscular rabbits.  The people there are also so model-perfect beautiful as well. A close second of Denver...
