Hey thanks for responding!!!! You mentioned the southwest area
of Colorado is your favorite-and also has friendly people.
What area is that or county so I will know. I did hear that
Colorado Springs is beautiful. I am really looking for a
friendly/safe atmosphere. Although I know you cannot find
anywhere being totally safe---I think you get my drift.
Looking forward to all of your replies.
