Well, with Cheyenne Frontier Days starting this Friday, Iíd think there would be some folks wearing Western attire at DIA. There are a number of roughstock riders (broncís and bulls) that do fly to rodeos. Steer Wrestlers as well.

Anyway, Colorado isnít all ďcityĒ type folks. There are a lot of rodeo fans still in the state.

I travel out of DEN weekly. I see cowboys occasionally, but itís pretty infrequent. Usually when there is a big rodeo going on somewhere. I will say that when I used to fly the United regional jets out of the annex in B Councourse, there were always a few cowboys there. Itís cowboy central during the Stock Show. I would imagine that during CFD there are going to be a fair amount of cowboys flying in to DEN.

We think you are absolutely right, but won't know until we land at DIA. But, then again, the Stock Show isn't the only rodeo along the Front Range. There is Greeley, the Springs, Castlerock, Loveland, State Fair/Pueblo, Elizabeth. Not only was I a member of PRCA, I got Pro Rodeo Sports News listing all of them in the U.S..

A number of rodeo fans fly in for the bigger rodeo's, like Greeley and the Springs. That's what we are now, since I'm not in the arena anymore...….rodeo fans.

One thing I do know, there are a LOT of transplants, from eastern and western coastal states, that aren't rodeo fans. That might be the reason for many not even knowing, or caring, about rodeo. Many, along the Front Range, don't even know about CFD.

Thanks for your reply. Someone out there that does know that cowboys and rodeo still exist on the Front Range and knows what CFD is. YES!!

My great grandmother was born in Colorado in the 1890s. While we were never cowboys, I definitely spent my time going to the rodeo as a kid.

There are still plenty of cowboys and related lifestyle in CO. It is not a predominate fixture in the Denver metro, but it exists in other places.

Earlier this year I helped a friend move his herd from pasture in eastern El Paso County to grazing in Douglas County. Another friend of my competes in dessage and western dress competition. Some family acquaintances in the San Luis Valley have invited us down for round ups several different times.

I know you were asking for replies from boat owners who had fished Carter Lake. Well, for what it's worth, we shore fished one day last week on the western shore. From the "cliff diving" bay up to the NW pier. It was blasted hot that day (probably didn't help that we were fishing from around 1PM to 4PM) and didn't have a whole lot of luck. I saw a few small trout being caught by other shore fisherman but nothing big. I hope you catch some great fish! (Would love to have you comment on how you fared) Have fun!

I live in Loveland and I've never seen anyone dressed like that.

Go to nearly any county fair in the state, except maybe Denver or Boulder, and you will find plenty of western attire. Granted, at a fair it will be spiffed up dress with big buckles, clean hats, and dressy boots, but it will be out. For casual daily western wear, visit any Big R. Lace up or traditional roper boots are not going to really jump out and say look at me like someone wearing a pair of Luccheses, and trucker hats are more prolific than cowboy hats in some areas, so casual western wear is actually pretty low key and won't particularly stand out to someone not looking for it.

We are here in Loveland and have been for almost a week now. We fly out on Saturday afternoon.

Have been to different parts of the area and have figured that it isn’t the town for us. Somewhat faster paced than we like and somewhat less Senior related than we thought. Even though the Larimer County rodeo is here yearly, the area definitely isn’t cowboy or rodeo related at all. Not that we want a full cowboy or rodeo related area, we don’t, but it would’ve been nice to see a couple of cowboy hats out in public.

As far as the lakes go, Lake Loveland is a private one, so we’d never be able to use it.
Went to Boyd Lake on Sunday afternoon and many young boaters on it. Only one dock by the marina, to accommodate four ramps.

Today we are headed down to Parker, where we use to have a house and check out that area. We know it’s changed since we left in Oct 2007, but still want to check it out.

Besides, checking out Loveland, we’d went to Cheyenne Frontier Days on Tuesday and it was ok. Didn’t seem like the same rodeo we went to when we lived in Parker.

So, bottom line is: Glad we made the trip, but looks like....nope!

Just off the phone with my brother ... who lives in Parker.

After many years there, he and my SIL are starting to think about moving -- probably to a much more rural setting. Too much traffic, he says.

Best of luck in your decision. Larimer County is but a speck on the map. There are lots of good places to live.
