BTW: I was born and raised in Boulder, spent 47 years there before moving to Nederland in the summer of 2002 (the summer the "whole state was on fire", to quote former Gov Owens). I too looked at the cozy homes in the mountains, and wondered how I would adapt to living there. Now I do, and while there are things of the city that I miss, I have no regrets. I work in Denver, and when I head up the canyon, I feel very much away from it all. No regrets here! But it isn't for everyone.

Estes Park is the most beautiful place I have been blessed to live for the last five years from Oklahoma. It has also been the most expensive place I have lived. It helps if you have money like anywhere in the world....but I am a hard-working local now....living in a very small cabin....right next to the National Park Life is good. The majority of folks that live here year round...are between 50-beyond....a lot of healthly people in Colorado period. Great air and water. If you enjoy the outdoors and a quiet life...Estes has it all. Our tourist season lasts only 4 months here....then we have our town back for another 8 months.....none of us complain too much when the much needed tourists leave...we have a love/hate relationship with them...as every tourist town does. We are not a ski town so we have to make the summer count...we have experienced more tourists this year then we can handle....changes will have to be made. We have NO affordable housing to meet the needs of the workers for all the small businesses here...if you get a decent job...better hold on to it....too many seasonal only jobs...at a low rate of pay. Many people have to commute from the Front Range....up to 50 mountain miles to get to work here...can be dangerous during the winter months....which are longer in the mountains....so you better like the cold...thicker skin is a requirement here...mentally and physically....that's why we're called mountain people

Please don't post your email address on an online forum. You should ask the admins to remove it. People can reply on this thread.

What kind of jobs are you looking for?
