The pacific coast to mid-Montana can’t be beat for scenery.If "awesome" is equivalent to "long," I agree. But I'll take the Pacific Coast to mid-Montana for variety.
I don’t knowhang on... I am a YANKEE! Born and raised Coloradoan. Pretty sure that's on the Yankee side of the line. 🤔
Don't get me wrong, I've nothing against Texas or any other state or place. There's likely no ideal place, maybe Monterey CA, but who can live there? Regarding rodeos, I know there are some in the San Joaquin Valley. But they seem to be all over the place; check: California Rodeos List of Events in CA. I remember a lot of two-stepping in Napa CA years ago. But the old Dream Bowl has been closed for years. I'm sure two-steppin' isn't dead. It's just that I don't know that goofy state any more. And I wouldn't know what I told you if I hadn't been to the Dream Bowl in the 1960s or had a son and daughter in Fresno near Clovis. California farming is legendary. It looks like most of the Pacific Coast is covered in vineyards. I think the largest tractor show is at Tulare at the World Ag Expo. It seems that Oregon and Washington are getting into more high-value ag. So I'm guessing that the Pacific Coast to mid-Montana is pretty competitive with Texas. It's just that there are so many people there. As for culture, I get no general sense of it. It seems that CA, Oregon, and Washington coastal folks think liberal and the balance of those states are conservative and cohesive.The pacific coast to mid-Montana can’t be beat for scenery.
I just really like the culture in Texas. Bull riding, two stepping , farming, Wranglers, even surfing down near San Padre.
The old I get the less and less I like Texas summers. Summer is about the only season we have.If "awesome" is equivalent to "long," I agree. But I'll take the Pacific Coast to mid-Montana for variety.
Actually it was. Colorado volunteers defeated Texans bent on seizing the Colorado gold fields at the battle of Glorietta Pass (NM) in 1862.I don't think that line had been drawn back then.
Now a days, me being from Texas, anything north of the red river is yankee country. he he he he
