Fort Lupton, Colorado, is a beautiful and friendly little farmingcommunity of approximately seven thousand five hundred peoplesituated on US Highway 85, about twenty-nine miles north of Denver.It is situated in an area not quite designated as in the foothills, yetnot far enough east to say it’s a plains town either (just somewhere inbetween). Summers are Rocky Mountain blue sky gorgeous, with springtemperatures ranging from seventy-five to over one hundred degrees inAugust and September. Wintertime can deal out twenty-four to thirty-sixinches of snow or as little as twelve inches. There seems to be an areabordered on the west by Interstate 25, on the east by US 85, and on thesouth by Interstate 70, which is more arid year after year in more recenttimes. Rainfall in summers seems to be minimal, so many farmers irrigatetheir crops. The Fort Lupton area receives more than three hundreddays of sunshine every year. I guess that the abundant sunshine is themain reason that I moved to Colorado in the first place.
