I started SomewhereOutWest to share what it’s like living in a part of North America where jackrabbits outnumber people. I’ve come to realize that the West is more than geography. Writing these short essays has become a way for me to explore places, people, and ideas … and hopefully get beyond worn out stereotypes and herd mentality. I hope you enjoy the ride!
