I love wide open spaces.
Although I grew up on the coast, where big mountains and big trees dominate, I have always loved staring out over the ocean. I like being able to see forever over the water.
I realized, as we traveled, that one of my favorite things to do was to just stare out over the landscape – the farther I could see the better. Most of this was done while traveling by bus…many, many, many, many hours on buses, starting out and just watching the scenery go by. I miss it and it just doesn’t seem the same sitting on my couch for hours, and hours, and hours, and hours especially when I can only stare at the apartment block across the street.
Here are some of my favorite stare-out-over-the-lanscape views.
You can see why I love getting out onto the prairie in our new home. There aren’t many high points but, once you find one, you can see forever!
