A little of that Western feel

It was after supper time. The sun was going down and I was walking through the neighberhoods of this town of roughly 20,000 citizens.

It was a perfect night for a walk. Yet - everybody was not outside. What traffic I did see was by cars. Their was plenty of vehicle traffic on this nice evening ; very little foot traffic.

It's a nice place to visit. I couldn't do this for very long. I need to see people walking, biking, getting to know their neighberhoods.

I need my cities.

Is it just me or is it that the further east you go the more they play up their "Western heritage?"

Are Easterners just suckers for the Romantacised West?

    Intersting page on Hays, KS. My paternal grandfather was born there... I hope to visit this town one day. Oddly enough, his mother (my great grandmother) was born in Denver, CO. Hehe.
