I just returned from a 3-week car trip through Texas. It was late May / early June there at the same time it was here. But spring was over for all parts of Texas I visited -- from Dallas through Austin through San Antonio through Brownsville to the sea coast, through Houston (and back home via OKC). It was hot except when it was raining or when there was a light breeze. Uncomfortable, sweat-trickling-down-your-back-for-no-good
-reason hot.
Now, despite the last 20 years I've lived in Colorado, I still consider myself a loyal Texan. But it was HOT.
DISloyally, I now no longer want to move back to Texas upon retirement -- I want to stay right HERE!

You NEVER know what you will wake up to. For instance, yesterday it was in the 60s and today, we woke up to snow and temps in the 20s. I think the saying is: "IF, you don't like the weather, wait 30 minutes and it will change." emoticon

With the holiday approaching, I have been thinking about my favorite celebration.
emoticon The BEST memory of the 4th celebration is from Grand Lake, my brother had a boat and we all got in it and watched the fireworks in the middle of Grand Lake. emoticon
It was awesome and the lights sparkled on the lake making everything glow. We all really enjoyed ourselves. I wanted to recommend it to our Colorado Team.

However, I just saw a report on the news, the Fireworks have been CANCELLED in Grand Lake this year due to the fire danger. With this in mind, I wish all a safe and healthy holiday. emoticon

We fell in love with this area the first week we got her in 1976.

This has been a long struggle, where I did real well the first couple of years and then slowly ended up gaining most of the weight back.

Well.... the weather here is the best of anywhere I've ever lived...
but I'd have to say my FAVORITE (as well as LEAST FAVORITE!) thing is the snow. I've seen amazing, unbelievable snow. And there are all the lovely snow sports.

Then, you have to drive in the stuff occasionally; and you have to shovel it; and you have to slipslideandfall in it....

I am a transplant from upstate NY and of course, the lack of humidity is a big plus. Love to look at the mountains and the weather is a wonderful factor here.

I love everything about Colorado! I vacation there when I'm getting sick of Pandora. My favorite thing in the state would probably be Red Rocks. Denver has a great music scene, and is full of fun, spontaneous people. The weather is fantastic; I love how often the sun is out.

I am a transplant. My parents brought us here in the mid 60's. Been here a long time. My favorite thing has always been the temperature. It can be raging hot in the afternoon and cool down to a comfy sleeping temp by 10. Or, it can be freezing cold at 5 AM and warm to short sleeve temps by noon. One never knows. If ya don't like it, just wait a few minutes. It'll change! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Living in Western Colorado I love the variety of options. When it cooler outside I can go play in the desert and when it warms up in the summer it is just a short drive to the mountains to play. I can't imagine living anywhere else.

I love all the critters that wander thru our yards- mostly deer, rabbits, 'coons, skunks, and snakes! I could do without the deer eating the landscaping and leaving their droppings all over the lawn, but they are just so peaceful and adorable to watch when they prepare to bed down for the night...

I love the scenery. I feel safe as far as no tornados or earthquakes. Not too fond of snow, but do love the spring and summers. I love the mountains. That is why I feel safe.

Fall is probably my "favorite" time of year in Colorado... but then again I love spring when the leaves are popping out... and I love in the winter when the trees are "frosted" on a bright sunny morning with a blue sky in the backgroud.... and summer days are awesome too!

I love the beauty you can see every day in Colorado.... even from Denver, you can see the mountains...and when you live in them... you can't miss it!

There is nothing like Colorado... ANYWHERE! (yeah, I might be a little biased!) :-)

Quitting makes it permanent!

emoticon emoticon emoticon I have always LOVED snow!!!! I like seeing it fall so quietly and covering the ground until everything is white and so quiet! I also love the Mountains and we use to live at 9,000 ft with views that were so breath-taking! Though I really miss the views, I do not miss the hair-raising drive we had when it snowed just to get to our house and into our garage!!!

My journey begins with one step....and I am taking that step today!

My favorite thing about living in Colorado is the easy access to outdoor activities! From my home in Littleton, I drive a mere 15 minutes to walk a 3-mile smooth canyon hike or more intense elevation climb of 7 miles or more! I tried snow-shoeing recently and found it a great way to access those familiar trails when the snow is piled higher than ankle-deep.

I love living in Colorado because it is so green. I have been here since 2006 and have stayed the same weight. A year ago, I had got down to 175 but I am back to 205. I want to use this site to remind me that I am not alone.

Weather that let's us play outside virtually year round. As we move (already?!) through August, nights where we live at 7400 ft. are getting quite cool. Temps are a little lower making it really pleasant for bicycling and hiking. Before you know it, we'll be skiing again, one of my favorite winter activities!

I love being able to be outside even in the winter. We take hikes and do a lot of playing outside with my almost 2 year old. We just hiked today and it was a little cold and windy so we were not a terrible long time out. Where else could you do this let alone have this beautiful landscape. I was not born here but I have lived here 16 years half my life so it is my home. I love colorado my husband and daughter were both born here and this is where we will live for a very long time.

I love that Colorado is a state that promotes a health life style for the whole family. The people, activities, mountains all of it is here for the taken and in return it gives give us an excuse to spend time as a family. My family is full of great skiers and boarders and I am the worse of the bunch! However, I love the experience and give it everything I have every time we go.

My absolute FAVORITE thing about living in this gorgeous state are the mountains. It's amazing to be able to wake up everyday and see them right outside my window each morning. I also love how diverse it is here and all of the activities available to us!! I love going on hikes in the mountains, especially in Estes, Golden or anywhere to be honest... I've lived here my whole life and I wouldn't have it any other way. :) Plus, we're at high altitude so we have an advantage when it comes to working out harder. How cool is that?!

Moved here a year ago from Canada. We love the four seasons and most of all, the snow that stays in the mountains! You can ski on your own time and then return to dry-land for a drink on the patio... Coolest thing on earth!

I have lived here on and off for over 35 years of my life, and because of the Air Force, have lived all over the US and the world. By far this is the Best place to live and I loved living in Clear Creek County, except at 9000 ft we were living in snow from August to June some years. Here in Falcon though, I love he 4 seasons and have really started to enjoy the Fall the best. But tomorrow it will all change since a major snow is headed this way.
At least here it will only be 12 inches instead of 3 feet though! emoticon

There is such a variety of things that I can do depending on my mood. And the beauty. I moved away from Colorado a long time ago and missed looking out my windows and seeing the mountains.

I have been raised in Colorado (originally from Montana). I like that we have four seasons and a little bit of everything. The mountains are just about an hour away from where I live. There are also beaches at the reservoirs. Yes, they are not the same as actually being on a coast, but it is a beach which you can do just about anything and everything you can do on a coastal beach. I put Colorado in the category of "God's Country" with Montana. What awesome beauty our Creator has made!

I believe one of the greatest things about our state is the vast diversity of landscapes and we have around CO. We have the prairies of the Northeast, the mountains of the West and the plains of the Southeast. We have large cities and small towns, and each has something to offer. Something for everyone. Our great state can offer just about any kind of cultural and sporting activity one could want.
I live on the edge of the "Great American Desert", the plains of southeast CO. I love visiting the mountains, but I get claustrophobic, I can't see the long distances I do here. I have yet to experience a sunset like we have here anywhere else.

Mountains at dusk- gorgeous! I also love that we have relatively few bugs.

Another perk is that we are a fairly fit state- I read that Colorado has the smallest percentage of overweight adults of any state. It helps being surrounded by people that share healthy goals.

Snow... It doesn't stay around all winter. I grew up in Alaska, and I love seeing grass in my yard throughout the winter. Also. gotta love the sun.

What's your favorite thing about being a Coloradan?
I love the little glimpses of springtime in the middle of winter! It keeps me on my toes!
