I know.
I think the mention of them was an oblique reference to Ishmael (with his tattoos) hunting the great white whale[s] in a small boat.

Or maybe a reference in a certain book to wandering in the desert, aimless and uncertain.

If you want a city of that size in Colorado, Loveland is probably your best choice. If you want smaller, somewhat more conservative though rapidly growing, take a look at Johnstown CO.


If that is too hectic, consider Fort Morgan. It is more conservative and traditionally western. Not that far from big cities and mountains.


Cody WY has 90 days of rodeo, low snow in town, elk, a lake for boating.


Helena MT has more snow but has most of what you want.


Payson AZ has the oldest rodeo, mid-size mountains, shorter winter, elk and Lake Roosevelt within about an hour.


Prineville OR has what you want too. If you'd consider outside CO and smaller (though Bend and Redmond are nearby).


You indicated you weren't looking at western slope... but Montrose might work.


I know you looked at Rapid City SD. It seems like a decent option to me. Carson City NV, outside Boise or Pocatello ID. Possibly Klamath Falls OR. Or Post Falls ID. If Loveland isn't quite right.


If you are firm that it is the CO front range for you, then consider the other suggestions available for consideration by other readers.

People have suggested many cities, but he isn't interested. That's not singing to the choir. Unless you use the magic word Loveland, or "near Loveland", it will just be noise.
