I went on a road trip this weekend (so translates to I'm still on said road trip) and I'm astounded by the sheer gorgeousness and diversity of our country. Driving through just Washington alone, at midnight to 5 am no less, I saw lush green to desert looking areas. In northern Idaho just a long river (Idaho was the most scary for me). Montana ranged from rural to farm land to giant trees to giant cattle and giant lakes... I just think when all the drama regarding politics happen we forget that we live in one of the most beautiful and diverse countries in the world (physically and culturally). We should appreciate that more.
