I made a fan page for the American West!
What makes the western USA so great? To me, it's the spirit of individuality and creativity of the people, both native and non. It's the redwoods, the Rocky Mountains, glaciers (albeit disappearing), geysers, canyons, red rocks and desert. It's the rivers, lakes, creeks, streams and the mighty Pacific Ocean. It's a wide variety of ecosystems and wildlife with life abounding. It's the emotional western skies, both day and night. So, American West, I salute you!
Let's have some tunes, shall we?
OK, that was actually a lot of fun to put together. Remember when country music was called country and western music, and it was oh, so much better?
Old joke bonus: I like both kinds of music, country and western!
Hmmm...I kind of had to research some of those. I have not been able to go to many art galleries/museums, but have enjoyed the ones I have visited, including Los Angeles County Museum of Art
, Museum of Latin American Art
, Craft and Folk Art Museum
, The Getty
, and Museum of Contemporary Art
. Yes, I used to live in LA County. I also recommend the Charlie Russell Museum
in Great Falls, Montana. I recently visited the Chihuly Garden and Glass museum near the Space Needle in Seattle, and it was amazing. I never thought much about glass as art. I hope to make a trip to New Mexico this year and visit the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, Taos
, and other museums of the area.
How 'bout a few quotes from my favorite western writers?
