If I were you I'd go now, before it changes.

The geography of Colorado is generally more scenic than Wyoming's and Colorado's climate is generally (but not universally) milder than Wyoming's--but Wyoming beats Colorado more and more in the decency and values of much of its population--and simple lack of population compared with Colorado's. I could easily live there again and don't rule it out as an option. Wyoming is not for everybody--and that's a big plus for it in my book.
This is not a Wyoming thread but if I was to move there I would choose Casper. I have been there and its a great city, reminds me of Pueblo. That being said I LOVE Colorado and will never leave.

To answer the OP question:

Love is probably too strong a word, but do I like it here? Yes. It's way better than Champaign, Il. where we lived before moving here. In some ways it's better than Pittsburgh, where I grew up, in other ways not, but there are no jobs in Pittsburgh (one of the ways it is better).

If you want to go somewhere that is NOT growing, I would suggest Pittsburgh. Housing is cheap there, too. b/c so many people have left.
