The air in Colorado is better


From The Year in Medicine, Time magazine:

"Not only is the air cleaner in the Centennial State, but the people there also live longer. A harvard study showed that the seven U.S. counties with the greatest average life expectancy--81.3 years--were all in Colorado..."

It has something to do with the fact that living in the mountains increases the chances that you will have an active lifestyle.

I love the Rockies. Now I love them even more.

whoa really? maybe the high altitude is good for heart fortitude as well. no broken hearts in colorado. that doesn't make sense tho. wasn't brokeback mountain in colorado? in the end, quitting ennis turned out to be the loneliest journey of my quiet life.

The air + altitude + people + outlook there sound pretty nice; perhaps I'll get to visit someday.

p.s. Julia--I think you're quite cool, even though I really only "know" you through the comments you leave on kelley's facebook wall. Hi!
