Pine grove

Being in a pine forest in the mountains of Utah causes one to go hyperbolic: I was contemplating writing an extreme statement such as "there is nothing comparable to being in a pine forest in the mountains of Utah on a hot summer day." While the experience is quite nice, I bet there is something to compare to it.

In any case: eat your heart out flatlanders!

  1. not only am I a (semi-) flatlander, but aside from in-town trees, which can be cool (like Live Oaks), the countryside is full of mostly just shrubbery--like big weed-trees all around inbetween the dry grassy areas. The hill country around Austin is better, but its basically just a giant hilly rich neighborhood now that it is all overdeveloped (practically a rule in Texas).

  2. I disagree with the statement that the hill country is just a giant hilly rich neighborhood that is all overdeveloped.

    I just spent a week in a nicely underdeveloped part of the hill country. The air is so sweet there.
