    How about adding- not being suprised to have a bear in your back yard – watching Eagles flying overhead – giving the town drunk a ride home – the ugly green building- being completely lost and still knowing how to get home – Pikes Peak out your window never looks the same – A hawk taking a prairie dog while you watch- knowing the people with the alpacas-Panoramic views of 14er’s – traffic jams because those cowboys are moving the cows – the cat in the area outweighs you – a castle in your area with a dragons head chimney – a neighbor who has a mountain lion or wolf rescue- people you don’t know waving because they recognize your vehicle- And number one “Reading this list and nodding because you know what it all means and don’t think any of it odd, and can add to it”

    I thought of more for your list, No one thinking it is weird to wear sandals, shorts and a winter jacket at the same time….Desinging Halloween costumes to be worn with winter coats….Knowing that Easter dresses might be worn with winter coats….Keeping a winter coat in the car, just in case even in July….Wearing shorts at Thanksgiving because it’s that warm…Mountain Bikes worth more than the car hauling them…
