City scenes

Looking down Capitol Boulevard at the state capitol. Although the State Legislature is in session, they are not in the capitol; the building is in the midst of a massive renovation. They are usually finished by now, but this year there has been a lot of wrangling about the state budget. [I’m not going to get on a soapbox here, but just say that the political stances in this extremely conservative state are almost always the opposite of mine...]

On the right is the City Hall plaza. And as you can see on the left, we still have snow in the mountains.

Looking down Main Street. The red brick building down the street is the Idanha Hotel, a historic building (I’ll get a closer shot of it sometime soon).

In Rome you long for the country; in the country - oh inconstant! - you praise the distant city to the stars.
