Know the West

Perfect phraseology

 

While tromping around for many years in such “awesome” places as the Colorado Plateau, the Northern Rockies and Alaska, I have struggled for words to describe their grandeur, and thus will be forever grateful to Paige Blankenbuehler for using the perfect phraseology in her article, “Grand Disjunction” — “the kind of landscape whose scale outflanks the mind’s ability to absorb it.”
