Most impressive part of the Rockies - lovely in winter, I expect. I'm a little closer to sea-level: http://brontobyte.net.au/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/frankston.jpg. Expensive now, but worth it when I retire (eventually). I'll take a Tanqueray and tonic.
Economics aside, this is truly one of the most beautiful locations I have ever lived in or visited. Wikipedia offers up a respectable page on the Roaring Fork Valley and also my Town of Carbondale. Climate can be harsh for those of us wanting a little more out of the growing season. Colorado saying, "We have all four seasons here. June, July, August and Winter."
On the plus side, having lived at over 6000' above sea level for the past 30 years has given me an excellent opportunity to become physically able to do more with less oxygen. Hopefully, I will reap the benefits of this when I move to under 1000' above sea level and start working a larger property.
Enjoy the rest of Winter and I'll tip back a Bombay Sapphire and tonic with you.
Oh my goodness. Such a small world. I've actually been to Carbondale. I had to go there to meet someone at the Southern Illinois University Press. It was only a flying visit to collect a copy of an old book they'd had translated into English. I remember lots of trees. A lovely place, indeed. Earl Grey and Spekulatius, I think on the occasion of such coincidence.
Several Carbondales in the United States. I've been to the one in Pennsylvania, from where several of the original explorers to the Valley hailed from and named our town after. Unbeknownst to them at the time there is an excellent source of high quality coal located underneath the town's surrounding ridges. The Carbondale in Illinois is indeed home to SIU though I've never been to that city. The closest might have been Peoria. Our Colorado version is quite the little rancher/farmer/hippie community that tends to be listed as one of the 'happiest' places to live. My personal belief, after 20+ years in this town, is that we are floating on a layer of alcohol and cannabis smoke that gives us the outward appearance of 'happiness'. The newspapers are all free and the number of liquor stores and recreational/medical cannabis dispensaries in town make us VERY popular to the visiting ski tourists.
Congratulations on Melbourne once again taking the title of Most Livable Cities in the World. I've lived in Washington, D.C. twice and while entertaining its not what you would call livable due to high crime rates and disparity of income.

And then (again) there were two.
Ah. It never occurred there might be more than one place of the same name though I should have clicked when I saw they were in different States. D'oh. Your particular version sounds delightful but as you mentioned, Melbourne is rather pleasant in its own way. And thank you for the felicitations; I claim Melbourne's popularity to be all of my own doing (of course). No idea where these people get the data to make these assertions, but there we go; good for the tourism industry, I expect.

I'm hoping we will have more than a puppet dump join in one of these days. Several new UGP members seem to arrive within a very short span of each other and usually right after we have a top 10 -25 showing in one of the census polls. Trying to decide if they arrive to be part of the high rating or to intentionally skew the standings downward. Either way, no one stays for very long.
No staying power, these young ones (mutter mutter).
I confess that age creeps into some of my more reptilian thoughts. However, you did warn me some time ago to be aware of the 3 major groupings in Nation States and that has proven to be sage advice. I now fall solidly into the middle grouping of been here for several years but certainly not in the 10+ years of activity that you reside in.
Our turn at out of control wildfires. The smoke builds up in the mountain valleys to the point of not being able to see a 13,000' peak out the front door. Thought I had a head cold at first and then realized it was the 10 days of inhaling smoke 24 hours a day. Aggh!

Just as we thought the weather might turn itself towards Spring, south-east Australia is in the grip of a mini ice-age; snow, sleet, hard frost. Lovely stuff. But even with all this 2015 has still been the hottest year on record. I wonder, with some trepidation, what next year is going to be like.
