Well, I wanted to get some opions on this. Mainly for thoughts on my home city (and old friend) Denver, but I wanted a comparison.
I chose Denver and Salt Lake City because they are two western State Capitals and are up against the mountains. The size and demographics are different, I know, but thought these two would be a good comparison.
I will withhold my opinions (biased as they may be) until some reponses for this thread are compiled.
