Our Walk: Panorama

At one point in our walk I stopped and took a picture in all four directions.




I can't say the landscape is dramatic. You can't see any mountains or canyons, any oceans or rivers, any forests or grand vistas. But after you live here for a few years, you learn to retrain your eye. You learn to see a mountain in a gentle rise of the land. An acre of wetland becomes an ocean, a farmstead grove becomes a forest. It's just a question of scale.

And I'll take the view of the prairie from my living room window over any other vista on earth.
