    Cortez, CO

    Cortez is, in some ways, the anti-Durango. It's a cheaper place to live (though, from what I've heard, not really all that cheap anymore), and it's not particularly picturesque or quaint. It's not in the mountains, either. It's the main town on the Great Sage Plain, an open, flat area along the Colorado-Utah border cut by deep canyons and used primarily for agriculture. The area to the north of Cortez near Dove Creek is particularly known for its beanfields.

    Cortez is kind of an interesting town, in its way. I like it.

    Mancos will have to wait for next time, I'm afraid.
