family friendly. good education for the kids, plenty of outdoor activities...very nice place to work (nice houses to sell I feel welcome and safe here. The lack of humidity is hard to get used to right away, and water and sunscreen are a part of your daily life.

My husband is happy, the kids are happy & I am happy.

Thank you so much for your input.

Why do you have to use sunscreen everyday? I live in CA and we don't use sunscreen everyday. Just curious.

High elevation means thin air, so the UV rays get through with much greater intensity, thus the skin burns quickly. I use sunblock daily, I'm very fair skinned.

Use sunglasses to stop the intense UV rays at this altitude from damaging the eyes.

Wear a hat to help the sunglasses and to keep sun off the head, especially if the hair is a bit thin. The hat also covers most of the forehead and nose in case the sunscreen missed it.

Keep a bottle of water with you, it is very dry and the sun and wind will dry you out in a hurry. Because it's so dry, you don't feel the sweat on your skin, it evaporates immediately.

Simple steps, but these assure a good day.

Mexican? Try Brewery Bar III in Lone Tree, just south of the Park Meadows retail resort.

We lived in Castle Rock for two years. Loved it! We lived in the Planned Development of The Meadows (had our house built in 2003). In fact we are going to move back to Colorado. We are in Southern Cal right now and hate it.

What's great here? Climate, people, the land and mountains, ultra low crime - downtown Denver is the most viable city I know (but I have not been to the Northwest), Christmas in Basalt, Thanksgiving in Steamboat Springs, day trips to Winter Park, Breckenridge, Mt Evans, very outdoorsey, hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails, the real west National Stockshow, great schools for the most part, lots of colleges - my daughter at CU and my son at CSU, tons of wildlife - elk, Bighorn Sheep on I-70, mountain goats on Mt Evans, saw my first Bobcat last August in Morrison..... I get carried away. I am from the South, and I am the happiest when I am on a plane back to Denver!
