Littleton is near Denver on the "Front Range", which is the eastern part of the Rockies where all the big cities are. It's about a 6-hour drive from me. I'm in the Ridgway/Ouray/Telluride area, which is in the Southwestern part of the state on the "Western Slope", and is MUCH less populated. In my opinion, the scenery here is the best in Colorado (if not the entire West), and is DEFINITELY worth the trip. Plus, it's only about a 3-hour drive to Moab. When my wife and I still lived in MI, we vacationed throughout the West each year. SW Colorado was always our favorite area. That's why we moved here. Let me know if you decide to check it out. I'll show you around, and I'll even let you buy the first round.
