What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Overall, the air quality is excellent here. There is one time of year where people like to burn grasses, etc, so the air deteriorates then. It's fairly minimal though. The air quality is a big plus here. I've been sick way less here than at our other more-polluted posts. - Jul 21, 2017
As someone with allergies and asthma - I love this place! Yes, you will still have some allergies and burning season is a little rough, but overall the air is great. - Oct 16, 2016

Perfect...except in the burning season...which can last a while. - Sep 17, 2013
The air quality is pretty good except that people are always burning something or another, and that can really bother me. There is always some flowering tree in bloom, which, while very pretty, means allergies are often an issue. - Sep 26, 2012
