What’s your favorite part about living and working in Colorado? The people and the climate – I find that the people who live in my mountain community of Evergreen are friendly and helpful. The climate can’t be beaten. Evergreen is a low-stress environment in which to work and live!
What community do you live in? What do you like about it? Evergreen, Colorado is on the Lariat Loop – a well-traveled destination for art-lovers. There is so much in the way of art appreciation in my community and art activities. Art brings a lot of people together in Evergreen.
