I am not still in Colorado. And when I have gone back, the Colorado I remember is there only in a few snapshots. It would be unthinkable now for me to go down to the "creek" and drink. Because of overdevelopment, the water table is frequently contaminated because of so many septic tanks. The monumental issue of land, wildlife and water management often takes a back seat to the prosperity that goes along with real estate money. A familiar dilemma. Still, Colorado will always be home even though I can't afford to live there.
