Hey Colorado Springs is nice too, though a bit crowded for me. It is a very conservative/moderate town, hunters are trated with the respect they deserve. Lots of friendly folk, very close to the mountains, not bad housing costs.

Merry Christmas and good luck!!
Chris

Ps. Please note that these are based on visitaion of the CO and extensive research. The locals can give you more info, though I have been to CO many times and am moving in March '07. I have spent a considerablt amount of time researching and talking to locals. CO is a smart choice, it's great!!
Thanks Chris!!! All this is GREAT to know!!! Thanks for the very helful information! I was reading your other posts too and some of the others and was starting to think Loveland too. I will definitely have to research that some more. I'm so excited, you guys have helped so much and I finally feel like I'm getting closer to moving there!!! This forum is great and I really appreciate all the help! Merry Christmas!!!

So is Loveland is flat for the most part?

Boulder sounds like the best city I've ever heard of!!!
I think I'll go there one day join the citizens in getting hunting banned & treated as the murderous barabaric activity that it truly is!!!!!!!!

Yes, Loveland is flat. If you want a mountain feel you will want to stay in the foothills. With the exception of Franktown and some areas of Parker and Elizabeth once you get out of the foot hills Colorado is very flat and no trees.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to create conflict or put Chris on the spot. He was just responding to the question I had about hunting. I thought it was good information, we would not want to move somewhere and step on anyones toes. We love animals and nature and respect them. If we do hunt, we do not do it as a sport, we do not have animal heads in our home. We eat what we hunt. We respect all people and their beliefs as well. Merry Christmas!
