Environmental refugee seeks clean air

The air in Estes Park, Estes Valley, and nearby areas of Rocky Mountain National Park is increasingly toxic due to particulates and smog from growth and mining within the Front Range counties of Colorado and from increasing population density and increasing number of tourist vehicles within Estes Valley. Hiking strenuously and breathing enables particulates and smog to enter lung tissue - which is not beneficial for a person's health. Thus, in a gas-guzzling thus ironic quest, I shall be traveling into Wyoming and Montana to see if any locales remain less polluted than Estes Valley.
