Mountain Lover, I was born and raised in Loveland, Co., I left there in 1980 and have been in Utah pretty much ever since. My sister still lives in Ft. Collins, I visited her last month and I could not believe how much it has grown in that area. My uncle lives in Estes Park and it is beautiful there.
I love Utah though, one weekend I can go camping in the high Uintas, and the weekend after that go spend some time down south in the red sandstone arches country. But you will not be disappointed !
I am new to this forum and will try and post some pics soon!
