Seeing Fort Collins on the list is a big laugh. It has no "spectacular wilderness" nearby, and most of the city has views of flat, open prairie.

Anchorage. I mean come on, it's ALASKA: The Wild North. There's some other good choices like Seattle or SLC but Alaska is much more wild and spectacular.

Colorado Springs for sure. So many beautiful natural places just outside including Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain and Seven Falls.
