Seeing the member information in the postings, I marvel over how diverse a group this has become. Keeping in line with the owner's statement that we are a nosey bunch, and seeing how there is a string going for what we look like, I thought it might be fun to see some of the locations we live in. When I see postings from Tailand, I wonder if the poster has vistas of the ocean, or rainforest, or exotic cities? When I see postings from Holland, does the member have vistas of windmills, tulips, and dykes? To lead off, here is a photo taken from my back yard. The house in the center of the field is about half a kilometer away. The farm complex to the right is about 1.5 km away. The foothills in the background (still with a bit of snow on them, not at all unusual for April) are about 15 km away. Those are just babies....they hide the real mountains (Teatons) that are about 100 km from us. And yes, the air is clear enough that we can see things over 100 km away, so long as they are tall enough to be seen over the earth's curvature.
