"When we think of Maryland we think of crab fishermen and the Chesapeake Bay. When we talk of Texas we talk of sagebrush and oil fields. But there are also mountains in Maryland, and there are piney woods in Texas.
No location on earth can be reduced to a single characteristic. Every place holds more secrets, more treasures, more marvels than have yet been discovered - even the field behind a parking lot is a wilderness waiting to be explored.
Whenever you think you know a place, look more deeply."
