  •  I Recall The First Time, As A "Flatlander" (9+ / 0-)

    seeing those mountains for the first time. A speed bump is the highest elevation you get where I grew up. Makes me think of the passage in Undaunted Courage when Lewis and Clark first came up to the Rockies and dropped to their knees to awe.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      a speed bump being the highest elevation where you grow up. Now that's homespun humor if ever there was. Very funny. Thanks for posting, webranding, and of course, anytime Lewis and Clark's twin names come up I am all ears. Hiked a lot of their terrain from Montana all the way to the Northwest. Well, at least in segments. I can also see why these flatlanders dropped to their knees before the Rockies. I mean, it literally and figuratively takes the breath out of you. . .those 'big busted ladies' as one mountain man so described.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
