Scenery wise, agree once again. But it's not lacking rivers, Lakes, and water in general.
I just checked the weather. Looks like it could still be high 80s into October.

Humidity was 13 today in Albuquerque and it gets lower at times but is often a little higher -- 30s and 40s and maybe a little higher in the rainy monsoon season. The dryness is something you get used to if you move here but it takes about three or four weeks if you come from a humid climate. You won't notice it much on a short visit but body sort of lets you know it's adjusting once you move here.

The area South of Reno (Carson City, Minden) fits very well.

Hey, everyone. Sorry about my absence. I didn't mean to disappear. I'm still a long way away from deciding on where to live though. All the help has been greatly appreciated.

I have a couple of questions though it's more out of curiosity than anything. If it turns out it's doable, then it could go into helping me decide, but I'd like to hear your answers even if it's not in the country. I might make a thread on it in the future depending on the answers I get here.

My first question is about weather. I was wondering if there's any areas that have a prolonged fall season. I know some have long summers and others have long winters, but what about fall? That has to be my favorite season with all the trees changing color and the dropping temperatures. I love weather in the sixties and seventies.

My other question is on the nature side of things. Is there anywhere that's very environmentally friendly? Somewhere that most people actually take care of the environment rather than constantly littering and destroying forests?

Though Vermont is more lush due to the humidity, Colorado can 100% compete with Vermont in natural beauty. The Springs has many areas that look like this
