I've never been to Houston, but if she hates it, then we should all take note. She must have a valid and logical point.

As for the mountains. My family is from Mt. Airy, NC, but I really love Colorado. The only thing NC mountain have over Colorado mountains is that the ocean isn't that far away.

I've been to RMNP and it's not that great. I enjoyed the Tetons more. However, I never get tired of Colorado National Monument. Or is it a National Park now. It's been 2 years since my last trip.

Have a great day!

William

^^take note how? You mean, listen to her and her judgement and not rely on your own by visiting it on your own?

The highest point in the Apps is 6,684 feet. Sure, the entire range is not that high but they still are mountains, not hills. Hills you will find in the Texas Hill Country.
From what I was told. The Hill Country was part of the Oachita Mountains which was built up in the same period as the Apps on the east coast and they connected together. I forgot what the name of the orogeny was but it makes sense. So the hill country wasn't always hills and I wish they was still tall. A geologist told me that the Apps went as far west as Texas but is buried in Mississippi and Louisiana due to erosion. Also, the land DC is on use to as high as the mountains of North Carolina but was easily eroded. Geology is a special subject to learn.

I like the Rocky Mountains- I was awestruck when I first saw them, when I was around nine years old. It's neat when there's snow in the mountains, but not in the foothills, in Denver or Colorado Springs- People get to look at nice, snowy scenary without having to deal with the snow, themselves!

After that, the Appalachian Mountains seemed a little disappointing. They're still nice, just not as impressive to me.

There are mountains and then there are Mountains, Colorado has the latter.

Rockies. Way more impressive and as a skier, NC doesn't offer much.
For warm weather activities though, NC's mountains are pretty good.

More than pretty good, they are great, no AC needed, low humidity, above 3,000 feet. My house was in the Blue Ridge at 4,000 ft.

You are crazy RMNP is gorgeous! Maybe that is why it is one of the most visited in the Nation!

Not far from the ocean ? We usually went to Florida for ocean or SC. Sometimes. Much shorter than the NC shore. A lot of people do not realize how long NC. Really is, especially if you live in the Blur Ridge ( the best part of the NC Mtns.) as I did. Remember in the Blue Ridge you live in the Mountians. In the highest Mtns in the west you usually travel the high roads, but live in the valleys.
