I have a friend that works as a wilderness/hunting guide in Wyoming. He is completely off the grid. The view from his front porch is what movies are made of.

I work for a title/home loan company and come across a lot of appraisal reports from around the country each day. I love seeing places like WY and ID and MT. Not so much the houses, just the exterior scenes. Some are just awesome I cant imagine driving home each night, to a house in the middle of nowhere with these incredible landscapes right there

At that age I was probably humming Simple Minds or some crap like that.

Now that I mention it, I had a recently bought Simple Minds live double album in my suitcase...

When I went to Portland, Oregon this summer, I took Amtrak home. The route we took went through Montana and I got to say what a gorgeous looking state. Yes its very rural and cell service is mostly impossible but the beauty of the forest and the glaciers where people were rafting in was something to see. Yes looking at landmarks and tourist attractions in cities is great to see, but it doesn't compare to the beauty of wilderness.
