Question: Which Denver Trail Town Appeals to You?

I've lived two other places since moving to the Inland Northwest 30 years ago this month -- Kalispell, Mont., and Lewiston, Idaho. (And for those keeping score at home, I've worked for the three media "tycoons" of the INW: Duane Hagadone, Butch Alford of Lewiston Trib/Moscow Daily News, and Stacey Cowles.) I enjoyed living in Kalispell and Lewiston tremendously, although the I didn't like the relative isolation of those places. I have traveled to Denver by car twice -- along I90/I25 and the southern route that goes through Pocatello/Idaho Falls, Ogden and then east to Cheyenne. Northeastern Utah is beautiful. As I've traveled, I've wondered what other place along the Denver route would be good to live in. You can help me choose:

1. Missoula
2. Bozeman
3. Billings
4. Casper
5. Idaho Falls/Pocatello
6. Cheyenne
7. Fort Collins
8. Billings
9. Butte (for the miners among us)
10. Other
