At lunch today we met with an old friend in an attempt to explain the GUARDIAN philosophy is to stimulate discussion, debate, and common sense. The photo above was in mind when we told our friend the image has a different meaning for anyone who sees it–just like many of the stories we post.
To some the scene is simply beautiful. To others it is growthophopbia with houses intruding on nature, to animal lovers it is a refuge for wildlife and for farmers it is next year’s water for crops. Skiers and snowmobilers see the snow as a place to play. What does it mean to YOU? After all, it is our back yard and the Boise Front only looks bigger and closer when covered with snow.
