An enduring memory that Susan and John Leavitt have of their years in Anaheim was the night in 1989 that they saw a young man die from gunshot wounds on their block. Today, the Leavitts are living better on less money in this postcard-pretty city at the base of snow-topped Pikes Peak. Leaving the crime and congestion of Southern California far behind, they are among a burgeoning crowd of Golden State refugees pumping new life into Colorado and the rest of the Rocky Mountain states.

Local officials say the development would add to the park's appeal and be an economic boon to the town of 275. But the National Park Service and environmentalists have criticized the project, saying it would be too close to the park's spectacular rock formations.

Earlier this year, when a company transfer landed him in Utah, Rhodes looked forward to seeing the Great Salt Lake he had read about in the magazine. Now he wonders what all the excitement was about. "It's something I always wanted to see, but it's disappointing," Rhodes said. The view is hardly enticing.

In the flat scrublands of western Utah, the mighty city of Los Angeles--which already draws water 300 miles from the High Sierra--has begun to collect the bounty of its latest foray into the distant West in search of natural resources. This time the prize is not plentiful water. It is electric power, enough to light a third of the city's homes, produced without adding any smog in the Los Angeles Basin.
