In a way the mid-west is the inverse of the Grand Canyon. Instead of looking down into the earth with its precipitous dropoffs, eroded and banded strata, the mid-west stretches outward and upward in all directions. It is a feast for the eyes, a wonder for the senses. While the spires of Manhattan awe us with what mankind is capable of building, the mid-west inspires with what the land is capable of producing and maintaining-  it’s openness and fertility.
