Longmont, Colorado is a 80'000 people city approx. 30 minutes north from Denver.
"Longmont" combines the words "Long" and "mont". The former stems from the mountaineer Stephen H. Long who is the eponym of a prominent mountain named Longs Peak (14,259. ft / 4,346 m).
"mont" is the French word for mountain.
Longmont is quickly developing into a diverse and modern city and is quickly stepping out of the shadow of its well-known neighbor 'Boulder'.
