Denver has a city skyline. Colorado Springs has a small one. No place else in Colorado has something that I call a skyline.
Fort Collins has a really small one, a couple of 10-12 story buildings and an 8 story building. And Grand Junction has one 11 story building in its downtown and a transmitter tower about the same hight. But I'm not really sure if that counts as a skyline. Oh and it has what appears to be a 10 story hospital tower outside of it's downtown.

Here's a link to a pano of Grand Junction:

And you call yourselves Coloradans! How could you all overlook the tallest building between Denver and Salt Lake City? Know where it is? I'll give you a hint: It's 33 stories.

Acutally yes i DO live in Colorado thank you very much and HAVE lived here since '95. I suppose it would help if I gave a definition of what I would call a 'skyline'. I would call a skyline any distinctive impact on the city horizon by commercial or residential structures. Granted I have not actually BEEN to GJ I have talked with ppl who DO live there and they say that GJ has a very SMALL one created by two or three short structures.

Now then have you ever been to BOULDER? ever seen a PHOTO of Boulder? go look it up sometime, height limit or otherwise Boulder STILL has a Skyline, same with Ft. Collins.

Honestly I never would have known about it if you hadn't brought it up.

Of course each person is allowed to have their own definition of a skyline, but I don't think Fort Collins or Grand Junction should be called skylines. If that's the case, then every Main Street in America is a skyline.
