I imagine that's because of TV markets.  Those counties probably are more connected to the Denver metro area than Topeka or Kansas City.

You're right, tho' I'm pretty sure it long predates TV (or radio) markets. They're all agricultural counties that, at least decades ago, probably sold most of their crops in Denver. But that doesn't explain why Cheyenne County (in the NW corner of the State) and Stanton and Morton Counties (in the SW corner) aren't included in Mountain Time, because the same is true of them.
