These days there is more chatter to decipher, and more bugle horns sounding countless “points of view.” All the conversations seem endless, and irreconcilable since today’s conclusions are kicked and tossed around by tomorrow’s new bits of data. All is in flux. Peyton Manning is one thing one day, and another the next.
Is it possible that Denver, Colorado is an “Island Among Cities” where paradise really is right around the corner? I think so. I often tell people, “Denver is 500 miles from nowhere, and that’s a good thing”. Think about it. Drive in any direction from Denver for 500 miles and ask yourself, “Where am I”. I think you’ll agree, Denver is an island paradise floating alone on the high plains at the base of the Rocky Mountains.
What do you like to do? Sports, recreation, arts, beers, wines, organics, , politics,outdoor life? You name it, we are only a short distance from it all. Six major professional sports, Red Rocks to Rockies, world class impressionists to natural history, beers, wines and whiskies right here. Ski areas just a couple of hours away with world class resort amenities or peaceful trails through the most exciting mountains around. From Telluride to Aspen, to Vail to Breckenridge to Winter Park and more, the Denver resident has access to them all.
With Fifty Three world class mountains over 14,000 feet above sea level and hundreds more over 12,000, we really do enjoy an authentic Rocky Mountain High even without our dispensaries.
Today it is 15* outside and snowing. Maybe that’s why I want the idea of an island paradise to hit home so hard. But, tomorrow it could be 60* with brilliant blue skies.
Everyone has their own idea of paradise. What’s yours?
