agreed on the air quality thing too. unfortunately, the summer wild fires tend to be very noticeable across the front range.
They are constantly working on Academy in Springs or I-25. Traffic stops for no reason or because of accidents going the other direction. Colo Springs is an odd place. When I worked downtown on sundays the place was a ghost town. Nobody was around. Huge homeless population too.
