One of the things I like most about Fort Collins—besides its people, the outdoor recreation, its downtown, and low crime—is its weather. Despite featuring 300 days of sunshine, low humidity, and moderate temperatures that make bicycling year-round possible, it does have four distinct seasons, resulting in some interesting changes in scenery.
Another upside is not having to do ANY yard work (including mowing the lawn) from October-April, as nothing really grows!
See this photo gallery of my back yard from the last nine months for a study of contrasts.
