Besides, what else is there beyond Denver and the Front Range? Most of your population and commuters live there.
Spoken like a true city cunt. "Everything's in Denver why should I care?".
There are a great many things about Colorado you can find beyond the cities. Cities are all the same. Restaurant food, expensive lifestyles, pollution, crowds, crime, noise, closed in spaces, an air of artificiality at everything.
But Colorado beyond that? There are high mountains, open spaces, raw rugged countryside. There are chile farms, cattle ranches, trails of every stripe, lakes, rivers, trees, small towns filled with people with a greatly differing perspective of everything compared to city folk. There's skiing both courses and out in the wilderness, there's greatly changing wildlife depending where you are and unlike how city folk see them they are not all zoo animals or pests to be driven away.
A big city is a big city, go to one, you've pretty much seen them all in terms of concept. Most people who come to Colorado come here because we are NOT just another big city area. They come because we have more to offer than just that.
Have you ever been outside in a place where you're the only human for miles in any direction? I have. There's something strangely enjoyable about that. Maybe it's the genuine peace and quiet, maybe the sense of true independence and self-reliance however brief that experience may last, maybe it's something else instead. It's something you cannot find and cannot get in a city and there are plenty of places to find it in Colorado and none of them are near Denver.
City cunts like you find the concept of anything beyond the city completely foreign and incomprehensible.
