The Front Range, the eastern gateway to the Rocky Mountains, extends about 300 miles from Wyoming to southern Colorado, demarcating the boundary between the plains to the East and the Rockies to the West. The label "Front Range" names the mountain range itself, and it also names the north-south corridor of major cities in the region. In this area of urban centers, rural farmlands, resort towns, and remote wilderness, a notable range of climates, geographies, ecosystems, and built environments abounds. We imagine this idea of "range," along with the boundaries, intersections, interstices, and overlaps it includes, as a conceptual touchstone or a jumping-off point for thinking about writing.
