There are lots of lessons to learn about moving to the mountains – they’re lots of fun, but you have to be prepared.
Lesson number one: As a city Denver gets the second most sunshine in the states, but always, always, ALWAYS have a jacket. I recently went up into Rocky Mountain National Park to go to “Elk Fest“, basically a small festival in Estes Park for people to drive in and see the elk, which have come down from the highlands to mate. They were all over the town – on the golf course, the school playground, everywhere! One thing you’ll notice is that it looks really nice and sunny, but up in the mountains weather changes quickly and it can get pretty chilly! It was actually only in the low 60’s that day! So, pack a jacket to visit!
