Flyover Zones



For a brief of time I lived in Manhattan, and today I live in Los Angeles, but I grew up in Colorado. Particularly while living on the east coast, people would ask where I was from and, upon finding out, reply with some disparaging remark about coming from "the flyover zone." That broad swath of America including the Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, Yellowstone and innumerable others ... apparently all worth experiencing is exclusively found on the coasts.

The Yampa Valley is gross and not noteworthy.
