Loveland was ok - Ft Collins BETTER
Loveland CO and Ft Collins are very near one another, and someday the whole place will probably be one big conglomeration!
It was ok. My problem was that I never found an affordable, good place to live - stayed in temporary places. I worked with the schools - I do NOT recommend their school system. I never experienced Ft Collins school system and had some invitations to Teach closer to Denver, which I never took, and instead moved out of State at that time.
Colorado is beautiful. It has an accepting attitude, or used to (I have not been there since 2015). The beauty for me of Colorado was the nature - the free access I had to it - it is just the best thing when life is hard, to stand and view the beauty created by God's own hand, and it just reminds you that you are part of creation - not just "in it".
And that you have a place. That there is room for you too, among creation and nature.
I loved the mountains - Loveland has this big, beautiful lake which has mountains beyond, and I frequented it (I can probably provide a photo here if its allowed).
The beauty of nature in Colorado makes up for a lot. I found abuses in employment were frequent in this area.
I tried to take a job and return to the area not long ago - they literally almost killed me (as in I landed in the ER because of them pushing me at very high altitude, and ER thought I'd had a stroke - I had not, fortunately, but wow!)
So I don't know what to say about employment - don't think I would try it there again. But some things were fine - beauty in nature. For a while, I attended a pretty good church (although I think it went downhill later).
I sure took many gorgeous photos and did a lot of Art. I did some music as well, although more in the Denver area.
I guess the plus for me in Colorado were the chances I was given to blossom. For that, I will always be grateful to Colorado.
