I'm in the latter part of the recruitment and application process for a position at a mine near Empire. Will be looking to live somewhere on the west or south west side of Denver if I get the job. Wife and I have done a little bit of window shopping online and were looking in the Golden/Applewood/Lakewood area since it's easy access to the 70 headed into the mountains. What are these areas like? Any areas to stay away from or try to get into?
