Two Opposing Landscapes

"The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function." -F. Scott Fitzgerald

Welcome to southern Idaho.

Drink in those golden windswept plains, the distant purple mountain range, and the huge, pastel, wide-open skies. Beautiful, right?

Of course, this awe-inspiring stretch of landscape is the exact opposite of the forested and foggy charm of my beloved Pacific Northwest.

Which just goes to show that I think Fitzgerald has a very good point.
