oldmanskiColorado def has its beauty and does have some great attractive people but you cant rule out SLC, UT. Granted it has their stupid liquor laws and their legalization of weed has taken a turn for the worst(what happens when you let church influence rights) but they do have some beautiful mountains with great snow and has some of the most beautiful women in the world.
I live in CO now and have lived in Lehi (A little south of SLC) and can tell you that while Colorado has beautiful mountains it does not come close to the Utah scenery. Its unreal how beautiful and close the mountains are there, not even mentioning Moab, Zion, Bryce canyon etc. If its really calm you can drive on the West side of Utah Lake and see the whole south Wasatch range reflected on the water and its breathtaking.
As for CO, I found the more I stay away from Denver the more I like the state. Colorado Springs actually has better scenery in my opinion and some really cool hiking trails right outside town. Colorado seems to have to layers. There is the Denver and tourist mountains layer which gets really old fast but once your here for a while and start to check out all the cool spots off the beaten path its a really varied and awesome state.
I wont even mention Northern Idaho because you all better stay the fuck away from there.
