I live in a valley, and to the northeast is a huge flat...called Cricket Flat. This time of year, it's an amazing place. It's definitely not heavenly year-round; in winter, the snow often blows horizontally. Several residents don't have enough water for their houses unless they haul it from town; it's easy to spot those pickup trucks with the huge plastic water containers on the back. But right now, the Flat is in the prettiest part of spring. The mountains in every direction are always in view.
