And good area for families of course.
You definitely need to re-consult the Ouija Board. Maybe a solar flare / terrestrial interference, but Colorado is not very likely to fit your "Wants"

You do realize Ft Collins is a 'prairie town'?

Foothills (dry arid bumps / w rocks, sage, and cactus) are to the west and nearby. Mtns are in WY and about 1 hr west of Ft Collins. (which is FLAT)

What is wrong with AK?, it is about the only place left in USA as you desire. The western states of lower 48 USA was Californicated 40 yrs ago. (when I had to pack up and leave CO due to CA influx).

It is not the place it once was, and will NEVER be 'wild / raw nature' again. That era is over in CO. Very high population / visitor / political pressure.

A person seriously wanting to relocate these days within the US should probably entertain and investigate at least 5 different states. Some states have enough variety and variation that each is almost like a little country. A state shouldn't necessarily be ruled out because of an overshadowing impression that might be only due to its largest city, etc. Keep it broad, to not overlook possibilities.
