    Hey guys,

    I've been having this idea of a thread where we can show our area in pictures. Wether you live in the city, countryside or mountains there are a lot of pictures to show. Here are a few of mine:

    The Vercors (mountains right next to my house)

    And here are some from the Alpes, less than 3 hours of driving from my house (mostly due to mountain roads):

    This one was actually taken during a uni field trip (I'm studying earth science, geology):

    I just love living here, it is heaven for mountain lovers!

    From these poctures, you might think I live in the mountains, but no, I just live right before the mountains, in the valley. Look up Grenoble if you're curious.

    I live in Kansas. So if you want to see some wheat fields let me know...

    I'm in a large (ish) city however.

    Show us some photos of the city. :D

    I will get more photos of Norwich up soon. Off school next Thursday, so maybe I can go into Norwich and get some photos then. :)

    Oh yeah, I drove my wife across Kansas on our way to Colorado. I tried to warn her about it, but there just wasn't any words to describe what she was about to experience. Half way across, we were praying for a carjacking.

    Not going to lie, that house looks really fun to live in. That's my favourite style of housing, where everything is everywhere, lots of big toys to play with too.

    Yeah the Eastern corners of the state are somewhat interesting but the 2/3 of the state on the west are just fields and fields of wheat and corn.

    Driving down 35 you dont even see the fields. Just pasture of green rolling hills. 70 west is pretty similar. Longest stretch of road it feels like. Because you cant wait to hit the border but it seems like Kansas goes on forever.

    I was stationed at Ft. Riley, KS for a year when I was in the army, winter there was too cold and summer too hot and humid.

    I live out in the country in a small town in N Calif with population around 7K, surrounded by farms and horse stables. Here's an aerial photo of my house:

    Love the landscape strollin and the U drive. Someone mentioned living in cardboard box.
    Not funny and seen people living in refrigerator boxes etc. I have made tours and visit and traveled many country's and likely still exist.
