My View From The Cheap Seats
This was my view of the local baseball game last night and once the sun decided to hang out a little closer to the mountainous horizon it was quite enjoyable.
To be honest, baseball is not my favorite sport. But, this is a team of college boys playing in the wooden bat league, and with a view like this, who doesn't enjoy some small town (OK, maybe medium town) baseball. In my opinion, this is what the sport is about. Young men playing baseball with REAL bats and entertaining the locals, the announcer giving out prizes for the correct answer to baseball trivia, kids getting down to the Chicken dance, crazy mascots running around, chatting with the strangers around you, cold beer (although overpriced) and peanuts in the shell.
Now that's how I like to enjoy viewing my mountains on a warm summer evening.
