Reading all of this guff about God fearing Coloradans, I wonder if people are referring to the miners who left their families back east to pursue a life of gambling, whoring, and drinking? Seems that the state was built on greed and has little to do with this xenophobic, modern-evangelical, neocon ideal. Like it or not, Boulder IS part of Colorado and represents a lot of what people think of the state.

True back in the early 20th century. But quickly disappeared once they realized there wasn't as much gold as expected. To say the state was built on greed is not accurate post-1920s

So, we have the nearly three quarters of a century between the gold/silver rush and the twenties and far fewer years between the twenties and the influx of "outsiders." Sounds to me like this ideal is mythical and that people are holding on to a false ideal.

The air traffic in Castle Rock isn't bad at all. Thats a bunch of baloney.

The nearest airport is Centennial and its at least 10 miles away.

Castle Rock is a great place to live ... and still feels small ... and the air is clean.
The stars at night ... are wonderful.

Uh, there were plenty of early Coloradoans who didn't spend their lives gambling, whoring and drinking but operated businesses, taught school, provided health care, preached the gospel, worked the railroad, cut hair, or ranched to feed their families who lived with them. They endured and played bigger roles in building the state than the young, hard-drinking, gambling, single ephemeral miners who came and went.
