Reader: I Left Denver Because of the Urban Sprawl
In a recent Comment of the Day, a reader suggested that Denver's traffic is getting to be as bad as in Los Angeles.
Plenty of people who've lived in both places objected to this characterization, while a few echoed it.
Meanwhile, forever, a post details the reasons one Colorado lover chose to leave Denver and relocate back east.
And traffic wasn't the only reason.

I lived in Denver /Lakewood for a long time. I love it there. Now urban sprawl took over. I never wanted to leave you, beautiful Colorado. The rent was going way up. I moved back to Asheville NC, super cool place. Perhaps one day I will return. Who will take me back?
