Ironic, then, how my Pennsylvanian uncle once came here and scoffed at California's mountains. I wonder what he was thinking.

When I went to middle school in New England for a brief period, the geography teacher informed us that the East was mountainous and the West was basically flat.

When I questioned his statements, he clarified that he was referring to the midwest. He stated that there was need to concern ourselves with the western USA in a geography class because there was nothing out there that was worth talking about...

Nonetheless, the eastern mountains are spectacular in their own way. I can look out from a high point and see row after row of rolling green mountains all the way out to the horizon, and there's not a single road or house in view.

God I love West Virginia. Parts of Pennsylvania are pretty spectacular too.

BTW, we call this region "West Pennsyltucky." :D
