The cities along the front range are actually on the plains. So Denver and Boulder are not in the mountains as may people imagine. But the mountains do start litterally across the street in many casses.
When I take my lunch on the east side of the buildings here on the IBM campus I get a fantastic view of the mountains. Starting with the foothills I can see 4 or 5 peaks back toward the horizon. Every day, depending on the weather and the time, the hills look noticably different but always amazing. Couple that with the fuzzy bunnies living on campus, the dove calls and the hawks circling 20 feet over my head complaining loudly about me scaring off scaring off the ground hogs; it is a beautiful place to work.
Almost worth the commute.
