"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely. Broad, wholesome, charitable views cannot be acquired by vegetating in one's little corner of earth."
From "Innocents Abroad," 1869
My antidote? Try the road less traveled. Even if it's corrugated and dusty! If at first you can't find the road, try clicking on the photo to enlarge it.

The hills were literally carpeted with tiny yellow Goldfields, yellow Hillside Daisies and yellow-orange Fiddleneck, giving the Carrizo Plain its Springtime glow.
