Denver? Normally I'd recommend Portland or Seattle, but the cost of living there has become absurdly expensive and I just don't believe you'd be able to afford it on a teacher's salary.

Anything on the west coast is going to be cost prohibitive and despite a relatively high quality of life in some places it's just not having to worry about scraping buy because the cost of living is so high. This is the one area that hasn't crushed Utah yet (*yet*), cost of living here is still reasonable. Denver is more expensive, to be sure, but given your preferences it'll be one of the few options.
