RIO GRANDE NATIONAL FOREST, COLORADO - SEPTEMBER 23: Cinnamon Pass, approximately 11 miles near Canby Mountain, is seen at sunset on September 23, 2023 in Rio Grande National Forest, Colorado. Sitting 13,478 ft in elevation, Canby Mountain is situated on the Continental Divide high in the San Juan mountains. The headwaters of the Rio Grande River form on the eastern side of the mountain's base. The 1,885 mile-long river, which supplies water for over 12 million people, begins as a small stream from precipitation and gains momentum as it is joined by the Pecos, Devils, Chama, and Puerco rivers in the United States. As the Rio Grande makes its way Southeast down through New Mexico and Texas, it eventually meets the Gulf of Mexico near Brownsville, Texas. An increasingly arid climate and growing population throughout New Mexico and Texas, has raised concerns about the severity, regularity and duration of naturally occurring droughts in the Southwest region of the United States.

Denver, CO – Where is the most peaceful place in all of the United States to live?  According to finance website Insider Monkey, Fort Collins, Colorado is the most peaceful place to live in the United States. 

The city earned the top spot for its access to outdoor spaces, low average noise level, and overall quality of life. Fort Collins has a noise level of 38.03 adjusted decibels, which is equivalent to rustling leaves or a whisper.

The city’s high percentage of residents with access to outdoor parks or recreation within a 10-minute walking distance also contributed to its peaceful designation.

Congratulations to our very own Fort Collins!
