Then when you come home you see this

Instead of this



It isn't for everyone but for people who want to live in the mountains but still have city amenities and be within commuting distance to Denver jobs, Evergreen is a good compromise.

The two "high country" pics where taken at rocky mountain national park (I'll edit the pic just to make sure) which is close enough for an all day trip. Summit county is closer and has great scenery too plus Lake Dillion.

All other pics where taken in Evergreen except for the housing tract which is in Highlands Ranch.

Those are pretty cool links.

The March 03 storm was a "100 year storm" (I have no idea if this is true but that is what everyone says) and Evergreen got anywhere from 5' to 8' of snow. I wasn't living here when it happened but I have heard plenty of stories. It shut the place down for about 5 days or so, lots of people loss power.....

This is what it takes to snow you in here. This last season we had two storms that dumped 2'-2.5' each and after snow throwing my driveway the county road was all ready plowed and it was business as usual. I think this winters snow fall registered somewhere around the 5th or 6th most severe winter on record. Even this didn't snow the town in.

If something like that happens again I am 100% prepared for it and could easily live at home for a week straight, even without electricity in the dead of winter.

Fun stuff.

High Alt,

One question I had what do most people do if they do loss power for a couple of days? Do you and most have generators?
