What a beautiful shape the mountains have. It always strikes me that when I see the mountains in the distance on my drive in after being in Charlotte or some place else that I feel like I’m coming home. A very strange thing for a girl who grew up in the Midwest. The closest thing we had to mountains where I lived were the Sears Tower (I will never call it it’s other name) and the other metal and concrete high rises of a big city. The skyline of Chicago is beautiful in its own right but home for me now is definetly here in the mountains.
