  • I was orn and raised in Colorado. Fort Carson is at the foot of some very beautiful rockies. The air is dry. Yes, it gets cold in winter, and snows, but it doesn't last. It melts between snows. The summers can get hot, but, if you live in a very hot state, like I do with high humidity, the dry air feels really nice. I will say, it cools down at night, and you get relief. If you take a drive up into the mountains, especially in the higher elevations, take a sweater or coat. I miss my mountains!:-) I still have family there, so visit quite often. Good luck in your move!
