Not too far from the Continental Divide.
Lots of really fresh air, loads of wildlife (including apex predators); a bit more than a rock's throw from the tree line. ( UV Index is probably about the same as the Australian outback - flatlanders typically turn medium-rare in half an hour in the summer in their shorts, etc.)
No paved roads for miles, no street signs to speak of, not a popular area for tourists either (no ski slopes/resorts).
Mediocrity is so common, so forgiven.
