If you love the Sierra Nevadas (or even the high mountains in SoCal like the San Jacintos), you'll probably love the Rockies and vice versa (even the the mountain ranges still have a lot of differences.
Pikes Peak rises 8000 feet above Colorado Springs.



Mt. San Jacinto 10,000 feet above Palm Springs



Mountains behind Los Angeles with telephoto.



All from wikipedia. Can't find a good one of Denver, but I'm sure there's a similar one out there.

California, not "Cali." Cali is a city in Colombia.

And I don't agree with some of these comparisons.

Thank you!

Huge pet peeve of mine. I don't understand this irrational fear of syllables that has swept the nation.

Same! I don't understand why some people can't just spell out "California." I can't stand when it's referred to as "Cali." It drives me crazy. "Frisco" is starting to get annoying, too.

Yep. And so is "SoCal" and "NorCal". I think everybody should just start referring to whatever state they're from with the first syllable, followed by a "y" or an "ie". For example, Texas could be "Texy", and Washington could be "Washy". Illinois can be "Illy". Since I live in Eastern Washington, I'm from "EaWash".
