Outside

It’s been a cold & rainy April. This morning I got up and walked down the block to take an unobstructed photo of the mountains which loom over my apartment. When I visit the Midwest I am always struck by the 2-dimensional topography….

    I’m a mountaineering enthusiast who lives in the Midwest, and I get really sick of the flatness.

    I get the same sort of view when I look east from my balcony. Though not as white, not as green, and usualy not as stormy. What’s really fun is when you see the storm cloud coming over the mountains from the desert. (It happens on occasion during Arizona’s monsoon season.)

    We prefer to call it infinite three dimensional geography.

    In fact, when I lived in Kansas the long view allowed you to see weather come in from miles away whcih was an advantage in tornado season. Those used to an enclosed environment (the so-called three dimensional geography) who moved to this area often became blithering psychotics when confronted with so much open space.
